Perhaps those who know a lot more about this than i do can answer a question for me. Can a library in order to migrate to a new format when an earlier format is obsolete, under current copyright and DMCA laws circumvent a protection code in order to migrate the content to a newer format? The other form of preservation for digital content is to build an emulator that "works like" the previous playback mechanism, but to create an emulator requires reverse engineering. Are both solutions illegal for individuals and libraries whose intent is to preserve the content if the content is still under copyright? Chuck Hamaker
