[Wikimedia-l] AMD petition

James Salsman-2
Please join me in asking AMD to open-source the PSP (backdoor) in
their chips -- a chance to regain secure x86 hardware.

Hi Jim,

Could you clarify the relationship with Wikimedia on this? I'm missing the
link.

Best,
Lodewijk

Recent leaks suggest almost all commercial x86 processors have been
compromised by closed-source back doors which enable eavesdropping and DRM
copy protection which in turn inhibits fair use.

Hi James,

Again, could you clarify how this is related to Wikimedia?  If there's a
direct connection I am not seeing it.

Cheers,
Craig

The Foundation is suing the NSA over preventing remote surveillance using
such techniques and has taken positions protecting fair use.
