Security experts use DMCA to protect themselves and exploits they wrote from vendors who use DCMA to prevent security holes disclosure. What an irony! From comments in exploit posted to vuln-dev maillist:

# This code is copyrighted by Snosoft

# If you are a direct employee of HP or Compaq
# you are not aloud to look at this program or use it.
# in order to protect our copyright on this
# program we have crippled it (at least) by adding
# _IWORKATHP to some part of the code.If
# you do not work for HP or Compaq you may
# remove these letters at will provided this copyright notice

    Nice reminder to always proofread legal text ;)
