Comments on DMCA Exemptions for Media works

Draft Letter of Comment on DMCA Exemptions (2006) for defined classes of AV materials

Copyright Office Requests Comments on Possible Adverse Effects on Users from Prohibition on Circumvention

The Copyright Office of the Library of Congress is announcing the commencement of its rulemaking proceeding in accordance with provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that provide that the Librarian of Congress may exempt certain classes of works from the prohibition against circumvention of technological measures that control access to copyrighted works (17 U.S.C. 1201(a) (1)(c)). The purpose of this rulemaking 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 non-infringing uses due to the prohibition on circumvention. The Office’s notice of inquire requests written comments from all interested parties, including representatives of copyright owners, educational institutions, libraries and archives, scholars, researchers, and members of the public, in order to elicit evidence on whether non-infringing uses of certain classes of works are, or are likely to be, adversely affected by this prohibition on the circumvention of measures that control access to copyrighted works.

Written comments proposing classes of works to be subject to the exemption are due by December 2, 2008. Comments in support of and in opposition to the proposals will be due in February 2009. Hearings will be held in spring 2009 at times and places to be announced early in 2009.

For further information, go to the Copyright Office website at www.copyright.gov.

The Recommendation of the Register of Copyrights:

The Librarian of Congress, on the recommendation of the Register of Copyrights, has announced the classes of works subject to the exemption from the prohibition against circumvention of technological measures that control access to copyrighted works. Persons making noninfringing uses of the following six classes of works will not be subject to the prohibition against circumventing access controls (17 U.S.C. § 1201(a)(1)) during the next three years.

1. Audiovisual works included in the educational library of a college or university’s film or media studies department, when circumvention is accomplished for the purpose of making compilations of portions of those works for educational use in the classroom by media studies or film professors.

  5. You cannot restrict usage by department or subject within an educational organization. There are many different ways to approach teaching and the use of parts of any non-book media might be needed.

    One of the first two feature films that Ryerson leased on VHS were “Twelve angry men” & “12 O’clock high.” These were not for media studies; they were for what was then called Secretarial Science. The instructor used parts of the movies to demonstrate group dynamics.

    I realize I am writing from Canada where the copyright laws are different, but teaching needs are the same the world over. If a Canadian instructor needs to use excerpts from non-book materials for teaching non-media studies courses, then the chances are strong that this might occur in the U.S., Britain, or anywhere else.

  6. Even in public libraries, too often we are asked by an instructor, about just using pieces of films to make a point, and how to go about it. These are not film studies instructors. They are your High School English teachers, and your Business Law 101 teachers and so on. DCMA restrictons are too narrowly focused and should include the exemption ability for all instructors.

  8. Michael Brewer says:

    I know it will never fly, but what we really want is the ability to bypass these technological measures when the use is covered by an exemption to the exclusive rights of the copyright holder (107, 109, TEACH, etc.). Of course the tricky one here is 107, since it is intentionally vague, whereas 108 is pretty clearly defined (we should absolutely be able to bypass antipiracy controls for 108) and TEACH is (poorly, but) somewhat more clearly defined.

  9. Gary Handman says:

    yeah…I agree…but that’s probably really a losing battle. I’m not even all that sanguine about what we’re laying out on the table here as holding any weight, but I think it’s important to be heard and in large numbers.

  10. Roxane BenVau says:

    I support the proposed letter of Gary Handman, but suggest a minor correction: page 2, para. 1. line 1–”120(a)(1) Title 17″ should be “1201(a)(1) Title 17.”

    What do you think of something like this being added to the closing paragraph? “It is for these reasons that we as media librarians and educators request that audiovisual works included in the educational library of a college or university’s academic departments, when circumvention is accomplished for the purpose of making compilations of portions of those works for educational use in the classroom by academic faculty, be granted an exemption.”

  11. Barb Bergman says:

    All educators need to be allowed to use the content of DVDs regardless of what subject is being taught and whether or not the DVD has been encrypted. Not allowing educators to fully utilize legally acquired content, when that use is otherwise allowed by the classroom exemption, unfairly limits on educators.
    I am in support of expanding the DMCA exemptions to better reflect the spirit of the section 110 classroom exemption to the copyright law.

  12. I completely support the aforementioned letter from Gary Handman.

    It is our College of Science and Health faculty that would benefit the most from this change as they regularly use video clips in their classes. The DCMA exemptions must be expanded to include all faculty on campus regardless of discipline.

  17. Anthony Helm says:

    I, too, share in my support of the letter submitted by Gary Handman, in addition to many of the additional comments made by others above.

    Universities and individual faculty members have already purchased most, if not all, of the video that they are attempting to use effectively in the classroom, so there is little merit to the argument that circumvention of copy protection technology will somehow devalue the materials or dilute the potential market for the rightsholders’ work. In fact, by being able to introduce students to various films and cultures through academic discourse, there is actually a greater likelihood that the potential consumer audience of the rightsholders’ works will increase.

    I am the film studies librarian at the University of Michigan. The faculty and students in this department have benefitted greatly from the changes made to the copyright law in 2006 and I am grateful for the clarifications granted by the law. However, it is clear that those working directing in film and/or media studies are not the only educators who use media, either in higher education or K-12. I strongly support the statement submitted by Gary Handman and the amended comments of other colleagues and urge you to consider widening the parameters so that all disciplines can benefit from the current law.

  37. Chris Lewis says:

    I fully endorse Gary Handman’s statement about the need to expand the scope of faculty who are exempt from the DMCA’s prohibition on circumventionto to enable movie clip compilations.

    Many of the movies from the AU library collection are used to illustrate ideas that are being taught in areas outside of courses that would be identified as part of a film studies program. One case in point is a current class titled Philosophy and Film. This class uses a given film genre, Iranian New Wave, to raise philosophical questions about how the medium informs and alters our knowledge of the world. That class is taught in our philosophy department though in a typical week, faculty from history, foreign languages, international affairs, sociology, government, criminal justice,and literature use film clips in their teaching. The accessibility of home-use video has proven to be a boon to pedagogy in all areas and I think that needs to be recognized in the law.

  38. I fully support Gary Handman’s letter calling for the expansion of Title 17, section 1201(a)(1). Faculty outside our “media studies” department incorporate more video of all types in their curricula than the “media studies” faculty do. Exposing the largest possible number of students across multiple disciplines to the widest range of video programs through evolving collections of themed excerpts increases the potential audience for all producers/distributors.

    I entirely endorse Gary Handman’s proposal. Great teachers (which, of course, includes librarians) should be empowered through technology.
