It's fun to violate the D-M-C-A

What was the wording on this faux-DMCA laptop sticker I saw?

A few years back (2005 or so) I saw a sticker on a laptop. It was a parody or rewording of a DMCA notice, and the general idea was that, by opening the laptop lid, you were somehow violating the DMCA. I thought it was clever at the time, but have never been able to locate the text online.

bonus info: the sticker was supposed to be swag of some kind from DEFCON, but I don't know which year exactly (2002-2004 would be my best guesstimate) but it is not listed on their past swag page.

The only thing I came across was this. It doesn't look like a DMCA parody, but you can find the full text of it here (about 1/4 down the page, just search for "first amendment".

Response by poster: trevor: that's a great find, but unfortunately not the one I am thinking of. I specifically recall the mention of the DMCA.

It sounds like these shrinkwrap licensed pencils which I remember using a couple years ago.

It wasn't a celebrity sighting of Cory Doctorow, was it? The first thing I thought of when I read your post was this sticker.
