"EU court rules no EULA can forbid decompilation, if you want to fix a bug"

*Points at DRM* bug

@owl it would be so poggers if someone used this ruling to legally establish the presence of DRM as bug if it did anything to make the software perform worse

which, in the case of shit like denuvo, isn't even a stretch

@owl oh wait someone literally brought this up in the HN thread the other day news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2

@lunch yeah I was thinking of the Google DRM blob used in Firefox, that doesn't work with musl libc because they use Gnu stuff.
That would be good to fix, but I went back to torrents instead.

@owl also oh fuck excuse me for saying the word "poggers"

@owl nooooo you can't just point at things and say they're bugs! 😭
