Once again, the OTW and EFF persuaded the copyright office to grant vidders (and other makers of noncommercial remix video) a DMCA exemption! The Librarian of Congress 1) renewed the existing exemptions (which allow us to circumvent DRM on DVDs and digital downloads) and 2) added Blu-Ray.

You can read the EFF's account or read the ruling itself.

Aha! Possibly just a thing our presenter was not up on, then. (She was, uh, mainly talking about ways to get AROUND copyright law in a library rather than ways to, you know, change it?) Good to know that the ALA is indeed on the job there. *g*
