NW: The DMCA was pretty controversial when it was passed in 1998. There were two biggest concerns that the DMCA tried to address. The DMCA prohibited interfering with DRM even when use of the underlying material might not otherwise violate copyright. That is still a controversial part of the law and many people think the DMCA goes too far. Congress agreed with that assessment and formalized it in the DMCA. Photo credit: Wikipedia.
