No, Donavan is right.  Using DeCSS on encrypted DVDs is a violation of
the DMCA.  Its just that I don't care.  The DMCA is a bad law and I
will not obey it where it confilcts with my fair use rights.  Now, you
are correct that no one has yet challenged the DMCA in court regarding
its encroachment on my fair use rights to view DVDs that I own, so we
don't that yet.

Of course Issac would note that DeCSS is not any part of Myth and is
not assoicate d with Myth in any way.
