Attached are the reply comments of the Library Copyright Alliance filed in the Copyright Office's pending rulemaking concerning exemptions to the DMCA's prohibition on circumvention of access controls. This submission contains many examples of the burdens on education placed by the combination of DRMs on DVDs and the DMCA's prohibition on the circumvention of these DRMs. We have submitted our opening comments separately.
