[dvd-announce] Comments to the Copyright Office on 1201
Over on the dvd-discuss list, we have been discussing a reply comment to
the Copyright Office in its rulemaking on the anticircumvention provision
of the DMCA -- section 1201(a)(1). We propose that all classes of works be
exempted from the anticircumvention of access controls, where the access is
to make a non-infringing use of the work. We specifically criticize the
comments submitted earlier by the MPAA, Time Warner, and Sony.
The comment is online at
The comment will come from Copyright's Commons, rather than trying to speak
for Openlaw, but we'd love to hear comments from you on how to strengthen
it. It's due at 5 tomorrow evening. (More information on the rulemaking
is at <http://www.loc.gov/copyright/1201/anticirc.html> ).
Please email me or Bryan Taylor <firstname.lastname@example.org> with suggestions.
