 Australia changed software copyright law - cracking is now legal!

Software copyright law changed
Controversial copyright laws controlling reverse-engineering of software
have been officially changed. The passage of the Copyright Amendment
(Computer Programs) Bill 1999 yesterday will allow software developers to
reverse-engineer software code in order to develop interoperable products,
if the original developer doesn't make interface information available. The
government first announced the legislation in February, and it was made
immediately applicable to problems relating to Y2K.
