  5. Sir Arthur C Clarke’s Three Laws
    First Law: When a distinguished but elderly
    scientist states that something is possible, he is
    almost certainly right. When he states that
    something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
    Second Law: The only way of discovering the limits
    of the possible is to venture a little way past them
    into the impossible.
    Third Law: Any sufficiently advanced technology is
    indistinguishable from magic.

  7. Ensuring Security

    Every individual is unique and deserves the
    fullest and strongest security – no one is above
    the law

    There cannot be any form of “backdoor” to the
    security posture of the technology in the
    consumer space

  8. Ensuring Security

    Every individual is unique and deserves the fullest
    and strongest security – no one is above the law

    There cannot be any form of “backdoor” to the
    security posture of the technology in the consumer
    space

    No restriction of any form on reverse engineering
    and/or replacement of security features by the user

  11. Protecting Consumers’ Interest

    Consumers are purchase products are owners
    and have rights and obligations

    Security is MAGIC - like anything technology
    based – Clake’s Third Law

    Just as with ensuring security, the owners have
    full rights to reverse engineer and rip/replace
    components as they deem fit.

  14. Ensuring Innovation and Prosperity

    Freedom to tinker and experiment is a
    necessary condition for innovation cf
    Clarke’s Second Law.

    Legislative support to shield reverse
    engineering to improve products and
    services should be looked upon as being
    “assume positive intent”.

    Prosperity comes naturally when a thousand ideas
    bloom and a supportive ecosystem is sustained.
