'Data is inherently copyable, just as water is inherently wet' — Bruce Schneier

206

Schneier is the chief technology officer of the security company BT Counterpane.

He was quoted by Brad Stone in a January 17, 2007 New York Times story about the recent hacking of the antipiracy software protecting movies in the HD DVD format.

The media types fighting against the reality described so aptly by Schneier would be well advised to hop aboard lifeboats rather than continue to pile their sandbags ever higher in the hope of thwarting the onrushing tsunami.

For those who want to look more deeply into Schneier's background and qualifications, there's his website, www.schneier.com.
