Own Your Own Intreger

After all the fun with the AACS last week, it turns out that anyone can get their own 128bit number which can then be defended using the DCMA :) This is done by generating a Haiku which is then copyrighted. The Haiku generated for me was as follows:

The haiku is copyright 2007 by Edward W. Felten:
We own integers,
You can own one too.

Here is your very own 128-bit integer, which we hereby deed to you:
02 BA D1 6C B8 DD 0F B8 30 76 41 7A 08 53 0D D1

Not sure how well this would stand up in court, but it's interesting none the less.
