Doe defendants

DVD CCA also sued over 500 unnamed individuals. About 70 websites were named, but the suit also contains the interesting paragraph:

DVD CCA is unaware of the true names and/or capacities of the defendants sued herein under the fictitious names Does 1-500, pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure Section 474, who each were responsible in some way for the acts and omissions complained of herein.

In other words: We know nothing about them (including whether or not they exist at all), but let's sue them anyways.

To help DVD CCA a bit, copyleft.net Lemuria.org have created the Become A Doe (BAD) contest. Here you can turn yourself in if you believe that you "were responsible in some way for the acts and omissions" of DeCSS. :-)
