Yeah, unfortunately most countries don't see it the same way... :-( Also, that 
might change (your country's law) via EU directive if we don't do some 
lobbying on that matter...

Can you please send me a link to Switzerland's law that says that breaking DRM 
is legal if it is done for a lawful purpose? That would probably be useful to 
give as an example of countries doing what we want Portugal to do...

Also, DBD: it would be most useful to have a comprehensive list of countries 
and laws regarding DRM (what can and can't be done in each country).
