Walt Mossberg on DMCA

Very good sign that the tide is turning when a highly influential technology columnist writing in a mainstream publication criticizes the DMCA:

In fact, the DMCA, and other recent laws and regulations passed under pressure from media companies, are pretty hostile when it comes to consumers. They turn essentially innocent actions into unlawful behavior, because they define copyright infringement too broadly. They have given rise to a technology called Digital Rights Management that causes too many hassles for honest people and discriminates against the new digital forms of distribution.
