Copyright Office Lists Exemptions To The Rules

That's odd. Education and security research are on this list of proposed exemptions but copying and selling DVDs at the flea market isn't. I was hoping they'd get that one on the list this year. wink Thanks to Jeff for the link.

Copyright law is surprisingly pervasive. It affects everything from computers to cars (and tractors). The law says you’re not allowed to circumvent DRM on anything for any reasonآ… except for a big pile of things you actually legally can. Those exemptions get re-evaluated every three years, and today the new list is out.
