DMCA Anti-Circumvention Hearings - Open to Public

June 4, 2012 - 9:00am to June 5, 2012 - 5:00pm
Washington, DC

EFF Senior Staff Attorney Marcia Hofmann and EFF Intellectual Property Director Corynne McSherry will testify June 4 and June 5 in Washington, D.C., to respond to opponents of EFF's DMCA exemption requests. In our requests, EFF argued that it's important to clarify the legality of jailbreaking smart phones, tablets, and videogame consoles and also argued that artists and critics deserve legal protection for creating and using short excerpts of video content to make new works of commentary and criticism.
