Diebold to get smackdown

Because they tried to stop publication of information vital to democracy, Diebold may get the smackdown.
If you’re not familiar with the case, Diebold made incredibly insecure touchscreen voting machines. Not only that, but because there were no paper receipts, there is no way to verify a vote. When it was made public that they were aware of these shortcomings, instead of trying to fix them they tried to silence the critics with DMCA. Hopefully this case will stop the corporate culture of “fire first, ask questions later” of DMCA lawsuits. For more information on the problems with touchscreen voting, visit BlackBoxVoting.org.
