exemptions for DMCA

Anti-hacking copyright law to get review 

By John Borland,  CNET News.com, October 11, 2002 

"The United States Copyright Office is launching a rare round of public
comment on rules that bar people from breaking through digital
copy-protection technology on works such as music, movies, software or
electronic books. Regulators aren't looking to change the law, but they
are looking for public suggestions on what kinds of activity should be
legalized in spite of the rules."

From: U.S. Copyright Office, NewsNet, October 11, 2002, Issue 172 

November 18: Beginning November 18, the initial round of comments in the
Copyright Office triennial rulemaking proceeding on exemptions from the
prohibition on circumvention of technological measures that control access
to copyrighted works may be filed electronically through the Copyright
Office website


Comments will be limited to those proposing specific classes of works to
be exempted."
