Gamasutra: U.S. gov’t stands by DMCA exemption for museums preserving online games

Gamasutra: U.S. gov’t stands by DMCA exemption for museums preserving online games. “The United States Copyright Office stated today that after a period of soliciting feedback and comments, it plans to recommend that all exemptions to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act be renewed. At least one of those exemptions directly impacts the game industry: an exemption for museums, libraries, and other archival efforts circumventing the DMCA in order to preserve (in a playable state) games that require server support which is no longer available.”
