Copyright Office

Exemption to Prohibition on Circumvention of Copyright Protection
Systems for Access Control Technologies

AGENCY: Copyright Office, Library of Congress.
ACTION: Final Rule.
SUMMARY: This rule designates the classes of copyrighted works that the
Librarian of Congress has determined shall be subject to exemption from
the prohibition against circumvention of a technological measure that
effectively controls access to a work protected under title 17 of the
U.S. Code. In title I of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Congress
established that this prohibition against circumvention will become
effective October 28, 2000. The same legislation directed the Register
of Copyrights to conduct a rulemaking procedure and to make
recommendations to the Librarian as to whether any classes of works
should be subject to exemptions from the prohibition against
circumvention. The exemptions set forth in this rule will be in effect
until October 28, 2003.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 28, 2000.


After reviewing all of the comments and the testimony of the
witnesses who appeared at the hearings, the Register concludes that a
case has been made for exemptions relating to two classes of works:
    (1) Compilations consisting of lists of websites blocked by
filtering software applications; and
    (2) Literary works, including computer programs and databases,
protected by access control mechanisms that fail to permit access
because of malfunction, damage or obsoleteness.
