Attending the LES University - Strategic Licensing: Advanced Tools and Practices

I recently attended the Licensing Executives Society (LES) University course on Strategic Licensing: Advanced Tools and Practices. Esteemed peers from the US and Canada, case studies with twists and turns, and an experienced roster of instructors made for a very interesting and informative week – despite 8 hours a day in a windowless room!

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act and Limits on Fair Use

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) was enacted in 1998 in an attempt to curb the piracy of copyrighted works in the new digital age.  The most important provision, commonly referred to as the anti-circumvention provision,  makes it illegal to circumvent a technological measure that controls access to a copyrighted work or to distribute tools for others to do so. This means it is illegal to bypass DRM or other security measures. On its face this sounds very reasonable. However, this provision has had what were, hopefully, unintended consequences on fair use.
