Re: [dvd-discuss] Pro DMCA Argument Information ?

Two sources come to mind.

First, the legislative history should document what was in Congress's minds as
they voted for it. Second, the Copyright office had a request for comments and
accepted position papers from many of the big media companies. The Copyright
Office then presented a report on the submissions, especially the pro-DMCA
ones, to Congress.
