PR! I'm quoted in the following article on
Copyright Office considers exemptions to DMCA.

Seth Finkelstein, a freelance computer programmer from Cambridge, Massachusetts, wrote one of the successful proposals. He shares his experience in two reports on how to win copyright exemptions. Finkelstein fears the Copyright Office will punt on the more controversial issues.

"I think there are extremely sound policy arguments against the DMCA. The question is whether the copyright office is going to want the responsibility of making those decisions," Finkelstein says. "Nobody wants to face the wrath of copyright protection companies."
