No RX Aldactone

Categories: Agency/Board ActionsCopyrightsDMCA-TPM CasesDRMHackingLegal Reform

No RX Aldactone, In its recent triennial rule-making with respect to exemptions from the prohibition against circumvention of technological measures that control access to copyrighted works, the Librarian of Congress, James H. Billington, Aldactone canada, 100mg Aldactone, has ruled, again, 30mg Aldactone, Aldactone india, that persons making non infringing uses of older abandonware video games, as described below, Aldactone mexico, Aldactone australia, will not be subject to the prohibition against circumventing access controls (17 U.S.C. § 1201(a)(1)) during the next three years, Aldactone overseas. 250mg Aldactone, Specifically exempt from the prohibition are:

...video games distributed in formats that have become obsolete and that require the original media or hardware as a condition of access, when circumvention is accomplished for the purpose of preservation or archival reproduction of published digital works by a library or archive, 500mg Aldactone. Aldactone paypal, A format shall be considered obsolete if the machine or system necessary to render perceptible a work stored in that format is no longer manufactured or is no longer reasonably available in the commercial marketplace.

Dale's Comment: Firstly, despite many reports to the contrary, this is not a wholly new ruling, No RX Aldactone. The 2003 triennial rule-making contained the following very similar exemption:

.., Aldactone uk. Aldactone ebay, video games distributed in formats that have become obsolete and which require the original media or hardware as a condition of access.

Indeed, this rulemaking is more restrictive than the previous rulemaking because it now specifically limits such circumvention for preservation purposes as I discuss below.

Secondly, 750mg Aldactone, 150mg Aldactone, I have read many blog 'interpretations' of this exemption over the last few days (not linked to here for obvious reasons) and most bloggers don't seem to understand this exemption. Most are interpretting this exemption as a free-for-all right to decrypt, Aldactone japan, Aldactone craiglist, copy, distribute and use any abandonware on any system.  My reading of this exemption is much more limited. 

Clearly the circumvention exemption for "archival reproduction of published digital works by a library or archive" doesn't apply to the average gamer.  However, 40mg Aldactone, 1000mg Aldactone, the first portion of the exemption "for the purpose of preservation" would apply to the average gamer.

It appears the average gamer has the right to circumvent technological measures used to protect video games in obsolete formats that are already owned by the user for the purpose of preservation when the gaming console, Aldactone usa, 10mg Aldactone, for instance, is no longer manufactured or reasonably available in the commercial marketplace. 

This DMCA exemption does not exempt other provisions of Title 17 (the U.S, Aldactone us. No RX Aldactone, Copyright law) that otherwise generally prohibit copying, distributing and otherwise infringing copyrighted works. 50mg Aldactone,

So, what exactly does this exemption allow you, Aldactone coupon, 200mg Aldactone, the owner of a video game in an obsolete format, to do, 20mg Aldactone. It allows you to circumvent the copy-protection scheme used to protect obsolete format video games for the purpose of preserving them (backing them up and, presumably, using the backup if the original copy becomes defective).  That's pretty much it. Indeed in the Librarian of Congress' commentary on the exemption he flatly says: 

"...the sole basis for this exemption is preservation and archival use..."

An important point here is that Billington did NOT exempt non-obsolete formated video games from the DMCA. So, it is still illegal under the DMCA's (17 U.S.C. § 1201(a)(1)(A)) to circumvent DRM on modern video games for the purpose of backing them up - let alone for any other purpose.

This exemption expires after three years unless the rule proponent (in this chase the Internet Archive) proves their case again. Namely, that without the exemption:

current technologies that control access to copyrighted works are diminishing the ability of individuals to use works in lawful, noninfringing ways.

Buspar For Sale

Text of Bragg Buspar For Sale, v. Linden Labs Complaint (Oct 4, 50mg Buspar, Buspar paypal, 2006)[.zip format]
Jurisdiction and other Interim Court Filings
While I was converting this blog to WordPress over the last 8 weeks, Mark Bragg sent me his updated complaint against Linden Research Inc, 20mg Buspar. Buspar craiglist, ("Linden") that was filed on October 4 in the Chester County (Pennsylvania) Court of Common Pleas.  Mr. Bragg is seeking a jury trial, 750mg Buspar. Buspar india, On November 7, Linden petitioned the US District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to take jurisdiction of the case. 

I'm just now getting the time to review the claim and post this blog entry about it. 

The complaint contains a terrific history (frankly, 200mg Buspar, 40mg Buspar, the best I've read) of Linden, its MMORPG Second Life and describes how Linden differentiated Second Life from its competitors by granting "ownership rights" to in-game property (most MMORPG publishers claim/retain ownership in all related virtual property), Buspar uk. It also contains a history/description of virtual property generally in the context of the growing MMORPG phenomena, Buspar For Sale. 1000mg Buspar,

The 239 paragraph complaint alleges violation of Californian and Pennsylvanian unfair practices and consumer protection laws, fraud, Buspar ebay, Buspar us, violation of California's Civil Code concerning auctions, conversion (theft), Buspar coupon, Buspar canada, interference with contractual relations, breach of contract, Buspar japan, 500mg Buspar, unjust enrichment and tortuous breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing. He discounts many of the provisions of the Linden Labs Terms of Service ("TOS") as being unenforceable due to unconscionably, Buspar australia. 10mg Buspar, Suffice it to say, when this case is over, 30mg Buspar, Buspar mexico, I suspect Linden will be updating its TOS. Laughing

This Law.com article provides a good summary of the facts, Buspar usa. Buspar For Sale, The complaint, itself, is worth reading if only for its best-in-class description of the MMORPG industry and related virtual property issues. Buspar overseas, Excellent job Mark!

Dale's Comment: Given that many courts in many countries have upheld the validity of extremely one-sided Internet-service click-wrap/shrink-wrap agreements, I think Mark will have a tough time overcoming the clear provisions contained in the TOS, 150mg Buspar. 250mg Buspar, But he makes many compelling arguments pertaining to the contradicting public statements of Linden representatives, rights in and to virtual property purchased from other Second Life users, 100mg Buspar, and the right to recoup the real $U.S. dollars he paid into the Second Life economy and not returned when Linden booted him from the game.

Bragg is claiming ownership to his in-game property. I am quite sympathetic to his arguments and have advocated, here, for the the recognition, at law, of rights in and to virtual property. But, if analogies to real-world and intangible property are taken to their logical extreme, Second Life players could argue that Linden would never have the right to shutdown their MMORPG and deny virtual property owners of their "right" to access, use, sell and other wise deal with their virtual property when, as will inevitably be the case one day, Second Life ceases to be a profitable game for Linden. 

This could be a very important, precedent setting case if it goes to trial. It could set the ground rules for the application of laws to virtual property going forward. Needless to say, I'll be following this one closely.

[Dec 13, 2006 Update: Mark has sent me this link where the most recent court filings in the case can be found. At the moment the parties are fighting over the most appropriate jurisdiction for further proceedings.]

Blizzard Wins Video Game Hacking Lawsuit Against BNetD

Categories: DMCA-TPM CasesHackingModding Cases

Text of Blizzard v. BNetD Decision Audio of Oral Arguments before the Eight Circuit Court of Appeals [MP3 from EFF] In making a more stable and feature-rich, multi-player online video game server available for free to Blizzard's video game customers, in competition to Blizzard's own proprietary Battle.net server, the 8th circuit CA held, among other things, that the appellants' (i) reverse engineering and circumventing of Blizzard's CD key validation process; (ii) distribution of the resultant circumvention software; violated the anti-circumvention and anti-trafficking provisions of the DMCA. Dale's Comment: It seems to me that this is yet another unintended consequence of of the DMCA. The DMCA's primary purpose is to protect copyright, not to protect Blizzard's business model. So long as players are using properly purchased/licensed versions of the game, end users should not be liable if they create a competitive online means of playing that game.
