DVD Copying and Fair Use

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on December 29, 2002

JD’s Blog mentioned a new site, Protect Fair Use, that is championing the right to make backup copies of DVDs. The site provides background on the copyright law as it applies to digital media, links to related pending legislation as well as to the DMCA, and press about how consumers have been impacted when attempting to exercise their fair use rights.
This website campaign ties in with the litigation involving major movie studies and “321 Studios”, a company that distributes DVD copying software. See my previous postings on this copyright conflict here and here.
