Re: [dvd-discuss] DMCA Rulemaking issued - 4 exemptions
Since their comments on my proposed exemption were on pate 194 of 198, I have
to concur with your statement on details. I thought I had provided many details
and didn't believe they would understand if i launched into a little
jargon.....They have to reduce things down to fit their tiny little brains and
in the case of MaryBethPeters At UCLA I watched her put her hand to her eyes
("see no evil"), over her mouth("speak no evil") and over her ears ("HEAR NO
EVIL") so I am not surprised.
