The Privatization of Information Policy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The recently adopted U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) 1998 prohibits the development and use of technologies designed to circumvent copyright management systems. The underlying assumption of this legislation is that in cyberspace, the target of regulation should become the technologies that affect users' behavior rather than the behaviors themselves. This paper critically examines this regulatory approach and highlights its shortcomings. (edited)
