[ARSCLIST] Exemption on prohibition on circumvention of access controls
From: Patent Tactics, George Brock-Nannestad
one of my spies refers to:
from which I quote:
6. Sound recordings, and audiovisual works associated with those sound
recordings, distributed in compact disc format and protected by technological
protection measures that control access to lawfully purchased works and
create or exploit security flaws or vulnerabilities that compromise the
security of personal computers, when circumvention is accomplished solely for
the purpose of good faith testing, investigating, or correcting such security
flaws or vulnerabilities.
These exemptions will go into effect upon publication in the Federal Register
on November 27, 2006 and will remain in effect through October 27, 2009.
The Copyright Office is conducting this rulemaking proceeding mandated by the
Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which provides that the Librarian of
Congress may exempt certain classes of works from the prohibition against
circumvention of technological measures that control access to copyrighted
The purpose of this proceeding is to determine whether there are particular
classes of works as to which users are, or are likely to be, adversely
affected in their ability to make noninfringing uses due to the prohibition
on circumvention of access controls. This page contains links to published
documents in this proceeding.
Do read all of it.
