If they go after VW, then they need to go after everybody else as well - this has been an industry standard for as long as I can remember.
It criminalizes production and dissemination of technology, devices, or services intended to circumvent measures (commonly known as digital rights management or DRM) that control access to copyrighted works. It also criminalizes the act of circumventing an access control, whether or not there is actual infringement of copyright itself. In addition, the DMCA heightens the penalties for copyright infringement on the Internet

Depends on how you define "engine". They may use many of the same parts (block, head, crank, pistons, valves, etc) but I'm pretty sure the 2012 Jetta was still using a NOx trap while all the NMS Passats (starting in 2012) used an SCR/DEF system.And the 2012 Jetta uses a CJAA and the 2013 Passat uses a CKRA. The university paper claims they are the same engine. Thoughts?
If they go after VW, then they need to go after everybody else as well - this has been an industry standard for as long as I can remember. Besides, the article is false - it's not a device. At best it's a piece of the software that detects the standardized drive cycle and adjusts parameters accordingly to meet the requirements. Have you ever wondered why the gas mileage listed for your car is tough/impossible to reach? Same thing...
