(The last exemption round won documentary filmmakers only access to DVDs only.)DVD owners should be able to copy movies in order to watch them on other devices (like their iPads), argued Public Knowledge.Multimedia e-book authors should be able to crack DVDs and digital video generally in order to employ fair use in the creation of their work, argued book authors with the help f the University of Southern California’s IP clinic and Donaldson and Callif.
