Down with the DMCA Tue, Nov 2, 2004

Looks like at least one court is not so fond of the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act). Ars Technica has a nice little article titled http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20041026-4352.html DMCA dealt serious blow by Sixth Circuit Appeals Court]. Has a little explanation of what the DMCA is for the uninformed as well as Lexmark’s argument and why the http://www.eff.org/legal/cases/Lexmark_v_Static_Control/20041026_Ruling.pdf US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit] decided it was bunk. Good to see there are some in government that have common sense. Update: Found another loser trying to enforce the lame DMCA. This time it was http://www.wired.com/news/business/0,1367,61232,00.html Skylink Technologies that came out on the short end of the stick.

Newer and older stuff..
