Hi, Kerri! I'm new here and can tell already already I'm going to learn a lot from this list!

This copyright stuff makes my head spin, but I was wondering about how the November 2006 "Rulemaking on Exemptions from Prohibition on Circumvention of Technological Measures that Control Access to Copyrighted Works" figures into the discussion. It seems to allow circumvention in an educationcal context - at least for media studies and film professors!
