DMCA link-blogging

I was thinking of taking the DMCA off the blog description, as it's been a while since I wrote about it. But today is a veritable DMCA-fest due to the ten year anniversary. For old times sake:

EFF: Unintended Consequences: Ten Years Under the DMCA
Extensive report of chilling effects (I'm mentioned :-))

Wired Threat Level Blog: 10 Years Later, Misunderstood DMCA is the Law That Saved the Web
A dubious praise of the take-down provisions, and then discusses anti-circumvention (goes into censorware, and N2H2 censorware company, and I'm not mentioned! :-()

Freedom to Tinker DMCA Week, Part I: How the DMCA Was Born
Good history, for those interested in the policy origins and maneuvering.

Public Knowledge: 10 Years of the DMCA
Looks like it's not going to rehash what's been said, but unearth uncommon examples.

Note: I know the DMCA anti-circumvention cycle has started. Sigh ...
