A Decade of the DMCA
by Marcia K. Wilbur
In 1998, the DMCA was passed into law. Since that time, many cases emerged. Background information relevant to copyright law and some cases are included. Over the past decade, some DMCA related protests were held. This book chronicles some of these events. In many cases in the past decade fair use was little or no consideration.
In some of the more recent cases, fair use has been a consideration, which is somewhat of a relief to those who wish to create parodies and conduct research. However, there is no guarantee that any future cases that clearly fall under fair use will be seen as such by the courts. The examples in the book are not my DMCA story, but the story of Americans (and others) impacted by the DMCA. These are their stories, their experiences and some of their suggestions.
