My DMCA Guide Updated

I've updated my DMCA exemptions guide:
"How To Win (DMCA) Exemptions And Influence Policy"

It was originally written for the 2003 proceedings. The relevant references are now revised for the 2006 proceedings.

Thanks to someone I'll just refer to as "The Big Boinger" for a bit of encouragement, and better yet, publicity.

Note, regarding issues of unsustainable activism, this updating was extremely high on the curve of reward per unit risk. Nobody was going to sue me for a little rewriting. Objectively, I did have far more to gain than I had to lose (and even so, it was difficult in a sense). It doesn't compare to censorware decryption research.

Let me pre-emptively note, for well-meaning critics, that it would be an unreasonable inference to think that just because this outcome was an overall good result, a large amount of risk would yield a better result. That fallacy has been what's gotten me into deep trouble all along.
