Windows With Windows 8 right around the corner, the usual game of reading the end-user license agreements and spotting the different versions is in full swing. Usually, this is a game of ridicule as Microsoft comes up with ever more convoluted version schemes and EULA terms. This time around, though, the company seems to be taking steps to make things easier, as Ed Bott reports.

In Finland you are allowed to crack DRM but only to access media/software/whatever you bought. It's illegal to do so for any kind of copying including backups. Also it's illegal to distribute any instructions or software to circumvent DRM. And last but not least you are prohibited from discussing circumventing DRM in an "organized manner". It has been hinted that this might include internet forums.

Of course since the new law was passed only recently (2006 to be precise) it has yet to be tested in court.
