While the first day that the Copyright Office can accept cases under the Case Act approaches (apparently Monday Dec. 27, 2021 as of this writing  --with a comment deadline this week Nov. 12) the Copyright Office is making other rulings.

Kit Walsh, on Oct 28, 2021, of Electronic Frontier Foundation, reports that the CI has revised rules on DMCA restrictions, for research, education and repair.    These are cases that inhibit access to copyrighted work even though they don’t lead to actual copyright infringement.


The exemptions on the
federal register are discussed on this PDF.
