A new site has appeared with the intention of modifying the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. As most of you are well aware, there have been some odious uses of this law. It’s also used to file frivolous claims against competitors. This new site wants to repeal a specific section of the law, section 201 which would result in the following being legal again:
- Unlocking Cell Phones
- “Jailbreaking” phones, tablets, video game consoles.
- Screen Reading Software for the Bling
- Backing Up DVD’s.
I certainly think its a good idea. Check them out at http://fixthedmca.org/
