Possible recovery method
Authored by: Cerberus on Nov 23, '06 06:48:02AM
This is the Major issue with DMCA. Unfortunately, it is 'illegal to circumvent any copyright protection' and I am sure that this is true even for the original copyright holder as the law, as currently written, speaks to the action of breaking down the 'lock' that is in front of any data. It is at this point in the law that it gets ugly.

So, for example, you are allowed under Fair Use rights to copy any DVD for backup, but since you have to crack the DSS encryption to do that, you have broken the law even if the underlying data is your to protect.

Yeah - but if it's your own original work - are you going to bring charges against and prosecute yourself?
