Update: Press coverage of DMCA exemptions

Update on my prior entry about the Copyright Office's report on DMCA exemptions (short version, long version). The press is covering the issue today:


The Wired article has this succinct summary of the exemptions granted yesterday: "People may bypass a digital lock to access lists of websites blocked by commercial filtering companies, circumvent obsolete dongles to access computer programs, access computer programs and video games in obsolete formats, and access e-books where the text-to-speech function has been disabled."
