Diebold says, "Uncle! We didn't mean it!"
cananian
Diebold has filed a court document asserting that it is withdrawing all its Cease-and-Desist letters and does not plan on filing any lawsuits --- not even the one they threatened against me. Of course, it is doing this in order to forestall the EFF/Stanford's lawsuit against it. Since the EFF and Stanford law clinic were filing suit in order to obtain an injunction preventing Diebold from threatening any more people with its bogus claims, Diebold is hoping that saying "we won't do it again" is enough to get the case dropped. Of course, we'd like the judge to issue a definitive ruling anyway, since I trust Diebold about as far as I can throw one of their voting machines. Or ATMs, for that matter.

Details on this from Lawrence Lessig, Ed Felten, and Joe Hall, who also points out how the memo contents have been used so far to reform California's election law.

Oh, and regarding livejournal 'control' -- you'll notice that if you visit http://cscott.net that I've 'embedded' lj into my own home page, so that all the benefits of having lj maintain the blog service without having to make lj my 'real' home. I really ought to wrap the archive pages in my proxy, too. The only real problem is people coming to the LJ page and not realizing that the cscott.net versions of the pages are 'canonical'. Anyhow, this old entry from 2001 explains how I did the embedding.
