Boalt Students

deCSS in MIDI Format
Boalt student Jeff Schrepfer took the deCSS source code and turned put it into MIDI format. The resulting song, when played at 200 beats per minute lasts almost 6 minutes. It is interestingly melodic at times and ends in a pretty wild psychedelic fanfare. Have a listen.

Boalt's very own Prof. Mark Lemley is defending Nader in the lawsuit.
