Just a heads up, the DMCA tri-annual hearings (section 1201) were held this past week beginning at Stanford and moving to Washington D.C. For most, this is hardly noteworthy, simple routine democracy in action. For media professionals, this is indeed dramatic theater, pointed out by Wendy Seltzer. UofM's own (Morris) Prof. Tisha Turk referred to as a "remix artist" also testified. A decision on DMCA exemption is expected from LOC Librarian, James Billington, by October, 28 2009. I am anxiously awaiting the ruling, as we deal with digital media copyright/fair use issues on a regular basis.
