You Can Own an Integer Too — Get Yours Here

Remember last week’s kerfuffle over whether the movie industry could own random 128-bit numbers? (If not, here’s some background: 1, 2, 3)

Now, thanks to our newly developed VirtualLandGrab technology, you can own a 128-bit integer of your very own.

Here’s how we do it. First, we generate a fresh pseudorandom integer, just for you. Then we use your integer to encrypt a copyrighted haiku, thereby transforming your integer into a circumvention device capable of decrypting the haiku without your permission. We then give you all of our rights to decrypt the haiku using your integer. The DMCA does the rest.

The haiku is copyright 2007 by Edward W. Felten:

We own integers,
Says AACS LA.
You can own one too.

Here is your very own 128-bit integer, which we hereby deed to you:

[can't display integer]

If you’d like another integer, just hit Shift-Reload, and we’ll make a fresh one for you. Make as many as you want! Did we mention that a shiny new integer would make a perfect Mother’s Day gift?

If you like our service, you can upgrade for a low annual fee to VirtualLandGrab Gold – and claim thousands of integers with a single click!

    “Not Found” doesn’t appear to be an integer in any numbering system I use regularly.

    More to the point…

    … returns a 404 error.

  2. Chris S says:

    Ah! But the new code does work!

    73 5A 54 E8 25 B6 28 69 BD 2F BB 8D 22 6F 5B 36!!! Mine, all mine!!!

  3. Barry says:

    The amusing thing is that, conceivably, a person could use AACS to encrypt their own copyrighted content (say, home movies of their child’s birthday party), but use an arbitrary key rather than the one that’s been circulating around the Intarweb. Said key would then, under the AACS LA’s interpretation, also become a circumvention device.

    So, all we have to do is start encrypting our own copyrighted content with increasingly larger portions of the 128-bit search space and making the same assertion that AACS LA made. For that matter, we could use a different 128-bit encryption scheme, use the aforementioned key, and then accuse AACS LA and MPAA members of distributing a circumvention device (namely, the key that they have distributed to each other and currently use to encrypt their content). After all, it doesn’t matter whether you actually use a circumvention device for anything illegal – simple trafficking is enough to land you in hot water.

  4. Joe Williams says:

    Sure, a 128 bit integer is nice — but is there any reason I can’t have an 8- or 16-bit integer? FE1F is mine! And 0DE1.

    Whilst we are on the subject of keys and strings, I was wondering about DVD Jon.

    He registered the domain name deaacs.com. but he has not been prominant in the recent HD saga, and there is nothing hosted at that domain.

    But what got me thinking is that the admin email address for deaacs.com is

    fe61a7fd2fda93bf490b6187dd55c477-jj129@contact.gandi.net

    and I was wondering what the significance is of the string

    fe61a7fd2fda93bf490b6187dd55c477

    which, coincidentally, has 32 characters to it.

    Anyone any ideas?

  8. tobias d. robison says:

    I’m going to encrypt a poem using the interger 21. I admit that such a short key will make the encryption easy to crack, but then I’ll OWN 21, a number I happen to like.

    Next, I’m going to use ZERO as a key. As soon as I own zero, I’m going to try to stop all international artihmetic from happening! The DMCA protects both good and bad encryption, doesn’t it?

  9. Ed Felten says:

    According to our crack legal staff, part of what makes the number yours is that it has limited commercially significant uses other than to circumvent. That’s not true about 21 or zero.

  10. Kjartan Þór says:

    will you be keeping track of issued integers so that no two persons get the same one and also for trace if one would want to enforce the ownership :P

  11. sake says:

    What? I can’t own 21 or zero because they have “commercially significant uses other than to circumvent”? Hmm…but what if I decide to use a certain 128 bit number as a key? Can they prevent me from doing so and publishing my key publicly and thus granting it a commercial significance?

    Well, then, this brings also up the question of what part of publishing the “09″ number is alleged to be illegal. Is it the publishing of the number or is it the identification of the number as being a key?

    Since the AACS keys are all supposedly secret and random, AACS can’t claim to own any of them so I’m assuming that only implied or express comments that a certain number is an AACS key can allegedly make its posting illegal. A website that makes no comment as to the origin of a random 128 bit number it posts might be a different matter, likewise a list of random 128 bit keys which might or might not list any numbers starting with “09.” Would a demand letter have to specify the number in question in such a case and could the demand letter be posted. One wonders what a crack legal staff would think….

  12. I R A Darth Aggie says:

    I’ve declared ownership over all prime numbers, known and unknown…pay up, suckers!

  13. False Data says:

    Clever idea!
    Makes its point in style. But wait:
    Too short to protect?

  14. Jason says:

    What happens on the off-chance (1/2^128) that THAT 128-bit integer 0x09F9… comes up?

  15. John says:

    I wondered about that processing key. Surely, the processing key does have a commercially significant use other than circumvention. It has it’s genuine use in the wares of the aacsla.

    I asked my attorney, Perry Masonry, and he said that although it was an interesting point, it would fail because the keys don’t have any lasting commercial value – not even to the aacsla.

  16. Rob says:

    Barry – it will be difficult to collect enough numbers by some random method to make a difference – a the thing about 128-bit numbers is that there are a whole lot of them, and you can surely think of some better use for the billions of petybyte hard drives you’d have to have lying around (I may be off by a significant number of orders of magnitude in any direction).

    However, what is the period of the PNRG being used here? It would be embarrassing, not to mention legally complicated, if two of us gave our mothers the *same* key for Mother’s Day.

  17. Ed Felten says:

    Rob,

    The numbers come from /dev/random on a busy Linux system, so I wouldn’t worry about collisions.

  18. Jason Hall says:

    You’ll have to pry 20 30 1D EB 13 02 0B FA C5 71 09 67 BD 8F 83 9E from my cold dead hands, you cretins!

  19. enigma_foundry says:

    I hate to rain on everyone’s parade, but if you publish the number you may lose the right to claim secrecy. That’s how it works with Trade Secrets.

    I am unsure about circumvention devices though–maybe the law is different.

    Ed—what does your crack legal staff say?

  20. JanC says:

    Rob, it’s actually very easy to compress a list of all possible 128-bit integers down to zero(!) bytes + a 1-liner decompression program… ;-)

  21. Ed Felten says:

    My crack legal staff points out that AACS LA’s number is hardly a secret — it’s all of the Net and AACS LA even sent out demand letters containing the number — and they still claim the right to sue people for publishing it. A similar issue arose with CSS (the system used in old-fashioned DVDs), which is hardly a trade secret any more but its owners claim that circumvention code violates the DMCA.

  22. sidereal says:

    Now why can’t I just use the AACSLA’s number? And then sue them for promulgating a device to circumvent the encryption of my haiku?

  23. sake says:

    “A similar issue arose with CSS (the system used in old-fashioned DVDs), which is hardly a trade secret any more but its owners claim that circumvention code violates the DMCA.”

    However, DeCSS was a program. The 09 number is just a number–a revoked key. The legal argument will have to take this difference into account. Now that the number is no longer a trade secret and the key has been revoked, it is it really a “circumvention device”? If I have a key to an old apartment and the locks have been changed to I still have a circumvention device?

    (BTW, do I have to burn any demand letters from AACS LA that include the number? I’d hate to have to archive such a hot potato in my files since they AACS LA might sue me for possessing such a “device” since theoretically just having it is allegedly as illegal as distributing it.)

  24. manchmod says:

    If I can own one integer, why can’t I own all of them?

    I hereby declare ownership of all integers 8192 bits and smaller.

  25. manchmod says:

    all your bits are belong to me.

  26. randomwalker says:

    I wonder how small a key can be and still be a circumvention technology.

    Even at 64 bits, let’s say I land-grab 2^40 of those numbers (easy, even if I have to list them explicitly.) Now, a random 64 bit integer has a 1 in 16 million chance of belonging to me. Therefore any reasonably long 64 bit computation will violate the DMCA. Worse, if a few million people get together, we can own the entire 64 bit space.

  27. underwhelm says:

    I will be very surprised if the AACS actually sues anyone merely publishing “their number.”

  28. sadsac says:

    How do I un-deed this key that was just generated for me? It has a “13″ it in.

    I’m not superstitious (because being so is bad luck), but I don’t want forced ownership of unlucky keys.

  29. sadsac says:

    How do I un-deed this number that was just generated for me? It has a “13″ it in.

    I’m not superstitious (because being so is bad luck), but I don’t want forced ownership of unlucky numbers.

  30. Josh Tauberer says:

    Surely publishing *that* the number can decrypt some *particular* copyrighted work has to do with it. It’s been a while since I read the DMCA, but would anyone say a number in isolation itself constituents circumvention technology, or is it the number + how to use it that’s relevant?

  32. Paul says:

    This whole pathetic debacle only reinforces how stupid crowds are. Everyone jumps on the bandwagon of outrage that “they” can’t “own a number”, when that was never the point or assertion in the first place. Go find something worthwhile to get morally outraged about.

  39. pf says:

    Does the fact that the number is being sold on t-shirts, coffee mugs, mousepads and other properties all over the Interweb grant the number “other significant uses besides circumvention” and thus remove the numbers protection under the DMCA?

  47. Tim says:

    So maybe what we need to do is do a prior art search for every program and every music or art file that contained that number prior to the use of it for DVD encoding? No, wait. DMCA doesn’t care about prior art. That’s IP Law. DMCA isn’t real law, just intimidation.

    Andrew,

    We represent Minimal Access Content System Licensing Administration, LLC (MCSS LA). The above referenced integer, “1D E8 29 45 9B CF A6 86 2C A8 F7 74 DE D9 3C 6A”, for which we understand you are the Internet Service Provider or administrative contact therefore, provides to the public the above-mentioned integer, and is thereby providing the public a technology that is primarily designed, produced, or marketed for the purposes of circumventing the technical protection measures afforded by MCSS.

    In view of the foregoing apparent anti-circumvention violations, we ask that you immediately remove or cause to be removed, or disable access to, the above-mentioned integer.

    MCSS LA reserves all future rights and remedies with respect to this matter.

  49. Eric Norman says:

    I have a 256 bit number that I’m sure someone would enjoy (it’s prime and doesn’t have 2 as a primitive root). But I’m going to want a lot of 128 bit numbers for it.

    At what point does a sequence of digits of length N change from being a number and into being the copyright-able expression of an idea? Why isn’t the Adobe Photoshop binary file just a number – albeit a very large number? Hmmm … It’s handy that everything can be reduced to being thought of as merely a number!

    They may be able to get you on the mischaracterization of your “work”, Ed. Your haiku follows the first rule in syllables, but does not contain the normal reference to a season or a visible split between two halves of the work.

    All seriousness aside, the hilarious example does make a good illustration on why freedom of speech is so important. The limitations on speech must be very, very, very carefully managed and controlled by the law. When is something a “part” of a circumvention device? One function from some code? A header? “int main(int argc, char ** argv)”? A bunch of hex without any code? The code without the bunch of hex?

    There’s no clear line. This part of the DMCA falls way afoul of that “make no law … abridging the freedom of speech” thing I heard about so long ago.

    Oh how I wish this would be fought to SCOTUS…

  59. Brian says:

    I know a whole lot of people that would argue that the phone number and street address of the RIAA is not a commercially significant thing. Lets encrypt a bunch of stuff using those as the keys and then pounce every time those bums send out a piece of letterhead!

    Greetings. The Advanced Access Content System Licensing Administrator has chosen you to serve your system on the Game Grid. Those of you who continue to profess a belief in the Users will receive the standard substandard training, which will result in your eventual elimination. Those of you who renounce this superstitious and hysterical belief will be eligible to join the warrior elite of the AACS LA. You will each receive an identity number. Everything you do or learn will be encrypted with this number. If you lose your number or fail to follow commands, you will be subject to immediate de-resolution. That will be all.

  67. graphex says:

    This isn’t fun until I can find out what Ed’s number is on the poem he just sold me for $25. Then I can post his number on my blog and get a C&D letter from Ed’s attorneys (preferably written on a napkin).

    So if Ed ends up suing me for, say $25 and he loses his suit against me, wouldn’t that set a precedent which would help doom AACS LA to fail? What if thousands of “licensors” of Ed Felten’s Advanced Haiku Access Control System (EFAHACS) sued each other for pedantic amounts and all the plaintiffs sued with incredibly low vigor….

    What you say, Felten, see you in small claims court?

  68. reuben says:

    I don’t have a clue about the legal side of things, but if I transmit a 128-bit number x to you, that by itself does not give you any useful information.

    The number x only functions as a circumvention device in conjunction with the information that `the number x is an encryption key for the foobar scheme’.

    I’d be quite interested to hear an analysis of the whole situation from an information theoretic point of view…

    1) That string is selling t-shirts, which makes it of commercial value beyond circumvention.

    2) If publication voids your ownership, why the web page (obvious entertainment value aside)? Generate all the strings privately and assign all the rights to, say, the EFF. From a theoretical legal perspective, case closed.

  80. chair_tard says:

    Why stop with 128-bit numbers? Wouldn’t the absurdity of this be clear if you started with single-digit integers and moved up from there? Granted, 1,2,4,&8-bit encryption isn’t very secure, but no less protected by the DMCA. Also… someone should attempt to use some irrational numbers like Ï€ (pi) and e.

  89. graphex says:

    Craig, the HD-DVD key isn’t protecting private information – it is protecting an HD-DVD that you still have to purchase (or break “real” laws and illegally copy) to be able to watch. I think people feel that if they buy a publicly available work so that they can watch it, they should be able to watch it on their computer without having to buy an extra video card and monitor because their old ones weren’t HDCP compliant.

    Maybe you should do your homework before you call people names. Your post indicates you don’t really understand how this all works.

  91. Pat says:

    This is all very cool, but it would be much more effective if the list of numbers that people have been given was published somewhere. As it is now, there’s no proof that any of these numbers are “taken.” You could make up any number you want and post a comment saying you own it… I know, this is all just satire, but maintaining the actual list would just be so much more effective.

    I guess 2^128 possible numbers might eat up a few too many hard drives on the servers.

  122. Joe Merchant says:

    Property is only worth something if you are willing to defend it.

    If these integers have value to you, then you might spend a portion of that value defending the balance – without defense, your ownership is meaningless.

    If the laws of Trinidad and Tobago are amended to allow me to claim ownership of Titan and Callisto – then I may claim that ownership under those laws, but I doubt T&T will go to bat for me in any meanngful way when NASA wants to land a probe on my moon and I tell them to keep out.

    The DMCA has no teeth in and of itself, you’ll have to spend money defending your numbers, and likely demonstrate to the court the value of what you are losing by having your ownership infringed, so they might assign appropriate damages to you resulting from the infringers actions.

    Still – it’s a bunch of stufin’ nonsense, owning numbers. There needs to be a revolution in the concept of intellectual property ownership, the present system is about 50 years out of date – ever since audio recording and photo copying became consumer commodity products, I’m surprised the entertainment industries have held on to the present system as long as they have.

    mine is 55 53 60 37 F2 12 75 01 83 F9 27 9C 64 01 23 99
    and upon posting I got 4D 7D 40 EA BA FD 7C 22 BB AD 45 DF 09 77 80 D9 as well.
    But what would happen if I made a typo, sometimes, and if I’d claim 55 53 60 37 F2 12 75 01 83 F9 27 9C 64 01 23 98 ? Or 4D 7D 40 EA BA FD 7C 22 BB AD 45 DF 09 77 80 D8? Or the famous one? Ooops.

  150. Jonny says:

    This is fun, but the MPAA doesn’t really claim to own their special integer. The claim to own in *in conjunction with* a description of what it is used for. This is still silly, but not as silly as claiming to own an integer.

    Awesome number.

  152. Curious says:

    Why don’t AACS just encrypt their numbers so no one else can use them?

    What about, say, the number 8? I encrypted some personal data that can be decrypted via the key ’8′, can I own ’8′ now?

    But I accidentally over-wrote the first number generated for me. Does that mean I no longer own it? Or do I still own it, but I’ll just have a problem prosecuting anyone who uses my number? I remember it started with E0 07. Could I just send C&D letters to anyone using E0 07 at the start of any number?

    Speaking of which, doesn’t this integer have to actually encrypt something for the argument to be valid? Provding an unencrypted haiku with the supposed “encryption key” doesn’t justify the argument that the said key is a circumvention device, since nothing has been encrypted yet.

    @Sake

    DeCSS is a program, but expressed on a hard disk, it too is just another number (granted, a long number).

    It’s funny that we find it absurd that AACS LA can say that “X is ours, and publishing metadata about X such as ‘X is a key’ is illegal under the DMCA.”

    Why is it funny? Because anything that can exist on a hard disk (or generally, a representation of a Turing machine) is a number (somewhere between 1 and infinity) which could be a key and is therefore also illegal under the DMCA.

    If AACS LA wins by some bizarre logic, then all computers are illegal circumvention devices.

    But don’t worry, the law is capricious – if you have enough money on your side that small problem will go away.

    Silly question, if these take down notices were mailed to folks out there contained the key in the document did AACS make the US postal service an unwitting accomplice in the “distribution of a circumvention device”?

    “Wait! What if I wrote a program that spit out random numbers of arbitrary length … I’d eventually create Aldus PageMaker! ”

    This is very true. In reference to the AACS and the claim on a number, what exactly are they claiming?

    That they own a number?
    or that they own a conceptual representation of that number as expressed in digital format?

    What if I provided it in another encoding? Or in a different base? Or as the product of an algorithm?

    Surely, there must be boundries.
    Just because “their number” could be derived from my work, doesn’t mean I released the number itself, nor did I circumvent anything.

    They would have to prove INTENT…

    I’d like to see them try…

    Each HEX character is 4 bits : 0 to F = 0000 to 1111.

    I have a real problem. I got my own 128 bit number when I arrived on this page and I was real happy, but before I got around to writing it down somewhere safe, my W98SE box crashed again and I LOST MY NUMBER! Is there a way to retrieve it? I mean, I know I’ve got another one now I’m back, but it’s not the same. That one was special, my first very own 128 bit integer, and I miss it badly. CAN ANYONE HELP?

  355. Yahya says:

    Thank you! I have just completed using your site to generate and record a very large number of 128-bit integers, rather more in total than I can readily remember. Exhausting work, but well worth it, I feel; indeed, of considerable commercial value. For the actual number of those integers is a trade secret; as are the integers themselves. I have also used each and every one of those integers and that number as keys to encode THIS MESSAGE. I hereby publish a fair warning, that should anyone use any 128-bit integer in future to encode or decode anything whatsoever, of even the tiniest possible commercial value, they will need to ensure that they have not violated my rights to use each and every one of those integers and that number as keys to encode this message. To protect my commercial interests, I can naturally not publish any of those integers, nor even their number. How then, can anyone desirous of using a 128-bit integer as an encryption key be assured that I do not already have the sole right to so use that integer? The answer is straightforward: I hold myself in readiness to perform a VLNOOHATEBI (Very Large Number Of One Hundred And Twenty-Eight Bit Integers) Search to provide a Certificate stating that a submitted 128-bit integer either is or is not one of my 128-bit integers. Similarly, should anyone wish to use a very large number as an encryption key, I am ready to perform a VLNOOHATEBI (Very Large Number Of One Hundred And Twenty-Eight Bit Integers) Count to provide a Certificate stating that a submitted Very Large Number either is or is not the count of my 128-bit integers. Can one say fairer than that? Naturally, such a VLNOOHATEBI Search or VLNOOHATEBI Count will incur a modest processing fee, being the greater of $1.00 (One Dollar) Australian and 1% (One Percent) of the user’s gross receipts for the product or products protected by the 128-bit integer or Very Large Number, payable quarterly in arrears.

    I look forward to a comfortable retirement by the end of next week.

    What about social brute force collision systems?

    What about reducing the key space available to the AACS for free?

    What if your Haiku decrypting algorithms take as a key an unsorted serie of 16-8 bits integer, and works for the 16! permutations.

    Then for a given key serie of 16 numbers, we are taking 16! numbers out of the AACS guys, so 2^44 combinations gone from the AACS at a time.
    It will take a lot of time to test a key but it is reasonable with current processing power.

    We have increased the chances of collisions and reduced the space to 2^84.

    Could we push this idea further and dramatically increase the chances of collisions without requiring infinite processing time nor reducing the encryption “strength” and not making an all pass system?

    Well there’s legal precedent to this already.

    Remember when Intel went from 486 to Pentium? That was because they tried to copyright the numbers “80486″ and “486″ so Cyrix and AMD couldn’t name their clone chips after their “Genuine Intel” CPU’s.

    It was ruled that you cannot copyright, own, or trademark any number, because numbers have been around forever and are thus obviously public domain.

    So I guess neither you guys nor the AACS can own any of these numbers, no matter how “commercially useful” they are.

    Before you know it, you’ll be at fe61a7fd2fda93bf490b6187dd55c477.

    So would a shirt with this number on it be legal? Is my anti dmca shirt with the DVD decryption algorithm still illegal?

    odds on MKBv4 128-bit integer being generated here first??? maybe… ???

    just googled myself and found this…v funny.

    MKBv4 is now cracked. Ironically, about three weeks elapsed between the new discs appearing, and it being cracked – which accords with the interval predicted in this blog some time ago.

    There also appears to be a error whereby if a user (aacs) decrypts a bd+ movie and copies the decrypted content plus the relevant bd+ files to their hdd, at least one player will play that content. It appears to run it through the bd+ engine, and without getting suspicious of unencrypted content bundled with bd+ being played from the hdd.

    will you be keeping track of issued integers so that no two persons get the same one and also for trace if one would want to enforce the ownership :P

    The biggest problem with owning the number is, they actually distributed it in some form in their software…

    Also if you want to use a 128bit prime key, it is commercially significant to others, everyone that wants security wants a very long prime number as a key. So yeah they spent computing power calculating a prime number (I.E. incrementing and recursively calculating factors), but technically it’s really the algorithm that they use it in that gives it any significance. In another algorithm it may have different meaning.
