Ernie Miller has an important (get it?) clarification to the DMCA article I pointed to over the weekend. Specifically, a portion of the article makes it sound as though under existing precedent a consumer would not violate the DMCA if he or she were to circumvent CSS to play a DVD on an unauthorized player. Ernie explains why that's not the case — a point quite relevant to my discussions below of last week's DMCRA hearing and Keith Winstein's interview with Jack Valenti, and one which Ernie points out may not have been made with great force before Congress.
