Copyright Office Now Accepting DMCA 1201 Anticircumvention Comments

[Not a news echo!]

"The Copyright Office is conducting a rulemaking proceeding mandated by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which provides that the Librarian of Congress may exempt certain classes of works from the prohibition against circumvention of technological measures that control access to copyrighted works. The purpose of this rulemaking proceeding is to determine whether there are particular classes of works as to which users are, or are likely to be, adversely affected in their ability to make noninfringing uses due to the prohibition on circumvention of measures that protect access."

"The deadline for electronic submissions is 5:00 P.M. E.S.T Thursday, Dec. 1. Commenters are strongly encouraged to submit comments well in advance of the deadline to allow sufficient time to correct any format defects and resubmit comments before the deadline."

Will they really publish all comments on their website? Last time I only remember seeing comments from big organizations.

Oh, I found them:

Yeah, I guess everyone was published. I don't know why I only recall seeing the responses from RIAA, Google, I-Archive, etc.
