but I'm baffled to hear you suggest that there is no source code. There is, it's in C, it's widely available and it's under the GPL no less.

Back when I was downloading DeCSS, and I must admit, I haven't looked at it in nearly a year, all I was able to find, after examining many sites was the executable. Any references to "DeCSS source code" actually pointed to the css_auth package that I refer to in my post which is not a complete DeCSS package. I also remember reading several discussions in which people asked about DeCSS source code and the conclusion was that Jon Johansen had not released it. He may have done so since, but as of about a year ago (after this California suit was brought), it was certainly not as widely available as the DeCSS executable.

Make it right before you make it faster.
