did the EFF just quote Tolkein while smacking down the RIAA over youtube-dl?

lol, yes they did

@joeyh Love it. That specific analogy is interesting. I'm saving that for future reference🤓
"To borrow an analogy from literature, travelers come upon a door that has writing in a foreign language. When translated, the writing says “say ‘friend’ and
enter.” The travelers say “friend” and the door opens. As with the writing on that door,
YouTube presents instructions on accessing video streams to everyone who comes asking
for it."
