Filed under: — Aviran Mordo

The US Library of Congress has rejected a petition that would allow US iPod users to copy their movies to iPods and other devices.

iPod users had petitioned for the right to break the encryption technology on DVDs they legally own in order to rip the movies to iTunes and to their iPods.

However, the Library of Congress has loosened the rules protecting DVD encryption to allow professors of movie studies to break copy protection for educational use.

Filed under: — Aviran Mordo

Child abuse detectives in San Diego are investigating an advertisement posted on the Internet offering a free baby boy to a good home.

The ad appeared on the classified site Craigslist and included a picture of a baby, The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Several hours after police received complaints about the ad, it was no longer on the Web site.

A copy of the ad provided to police read in part, “Free baby boy to good home. My ex-girlfriend had him a few weeks ago, but now he just sits in my closet and cries. Transaction final. No returns.”
