Brian writes \"In a Column about the DMCA and related issues, Paul Somerson of Ziff Davis Smart Business says:
\"If Hollywood could ban public libraries, you know they would.\"
This is a very interesting piece indeed, every time I read something about the DMCA I just want to cry.
\"Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), an evil legislative bludgeon rammed through Congress by the Clinton administration, that prevents access to anything that\'s copyrighted unless you have the explicit permission of the owner. This essentially guts \"fair use\" of the material, and outlaws any attempt to break copy protection or encryption, or even reverse engineer anything.\"
