  I object to this ITP. Not very strongly, but I still object.

I think it's a wonderful idea to have a decss package in Debian. If
Debian cannot distribute the decss that allows Debian users to view DVD
movies (yet), then distributing this one is a good alternative, I'd say.

   This is really no different from the RIAA uploading broken MP3s to
P2P networks so that users think they are real music. (Disclaimer: I am
really not a music piracy advocate, but I strongly believe that such
behaviour has the sole effect of confusing users)

Although the RIAA might confusing P2P network users as a good thing. I would hope confusing debian users would be seen as a Bad Thing(tm) ;)
