*Section 1201 Exemptions to Prohibition Against Circumvention of
Technological Measures Protecting Copyrighted Works *



The Copyright Office has initiated the sixth triennial rulemaking
proceeding under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 1201,
which provides that the Librarian of Congress, upon the recommendation of
the Register of Copyrights, may exempt certain classes of works from the
prohibition against circumvention of technological measures that control
access to copyrighted works. The ultimate goal of the 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 access
controls. When such classes are identified, the Librarian publishes a rule
exempting the classes from the prohibition against circumvention for the
succeeding three-year period. The Notice of Inquiry
<http://copyright.gov/fedreg/2014/79fr55687.pdf> requests written petitions
for proposed exemptions from interested parties. For more information,
please visit www.copyright.gov/1201/.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues 
relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, 
preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and 
related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective 
working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication 
between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and 
distributors.
