Forgot to mention: dvdcss would most likely be illegal under the EUCD, which like the U.S.'s DMCA, contains a clause forbidding the circumvention of copy protection mechanisms - even for legitimate purposes. So it's very likely illegal in any E.U. state which has already passed a national law implementing the EUCD (as they are all bound to).
