ITM y'all! 'Uge 13th Anniversary Show tomorrow! Many, many thanks to Adam & John for helping us stay sane (and safe! 😉) during the absolute nuttiest year (of my life at least).

@rysiek Sadly, Switzerland has article 39a in it’s copyright act. It is illegal “to … advertise or possess for commercial purposes” anything that enables “the circumvention of effective technological measures”. At the same time, Switzerland limits copyright, e.g. I can make copies of protected works for myself or my close friends and family. It is my right to this, but I can’t get the tools to do this because the tools cannot be given to me, as explained above. 😠
