Several commenters in recent days have been attempting to post off-topic comments in the form of a hack that is designed to circumvent certain copyright protections.
These comments will not be approved, and any commenters who persist in this manner are subject to being banned from commenting. (See the disclaimer found above the comments box.)
Not only is it absurd and inappropriate that readers would attempt to use a government blog to break a federal law, but it is doubly so, in that the Librarian of Congress is the ultimate arbiter of so-called ?exemptions? to the section of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that concerns technological measures that control access to copyrighted works.
I?m no lawyer, but the attempted comments in question clearly do not fall under those exemptions. Anyone who supports a particular anticircumvention exemption that is not covered by the current rules should participate in the next triennial rulemaking.
