Are we allowed to distribute tools to bypass "digital locks"?

libgpod defeats "digital locks" on ipods. libcdio-paranoia can be used
to to bypass the crappy anti-ripping gunk some companies used to put
on their cds. Both of these are part of Ubuntu's main repo. I believe
they are on CD (the first depended on by rhythmbox-plugins & banshee,
the latter by gvfs).
