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,

You can own one too.
