In the Matter of Rulemaking Exemption to Prohibition on Circumvention of Copyright Protection Systems For Access Control Technologies Docket No. RM 99-7A

Pursuant to the requirement of the U.S. Congress in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), Section 1201(a)(1)(B-D), the Copyright Office has conducted a rulemaking proceeding to determine whether persons who are users of copyrighted works are or are likely to be adversely effected in their ability to make noninfringing uses of a particular class of works and to publish any class of copyrighted works for which the prohibition in Section 1201(a)(1)(A) should not apply to such users. Extensive public commentary has been submitted and the Office conducted several days of public hearings. In the course of the public debate, several issues recurred in the questioning by the Office. The Libraries would like to address these issues in their reply comments.
