DMCA 1201 Anti-circumvention rulemaking reply comments open

[I've updated to 2006 my reply comment "round 2" DMCA guide:

The U.S. Copyright Office - Anticircumvention Rulemaking (for the Digital Millennium Copyright Act) is now accepting REPLY Comments on Anticircumvention Exemptions:

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.

Before considering submission of a reply comment, please read about the scope of this rulemaking.

As a part of the rulemaking, interested parties were invited to submit comments in November 2005. These comments are available for viewing from our comments page.

Reply Comment Period

The Copyright Office will be accepting reply comments from January 4, 2006, until 5:00 P.M. EST on February 2, 2006. Persons who oppose or support any exemptions proposed in the initial comments now have the opportunity to respond to the proposals made in the initial comments and to provide factual information and/or legal argument addressing whether a proposed exemption should be adopted. ...
