I think DMCA in 1996?


DMCA was passed in 1998, based on WIPO treaties from 1996.

The DMCA had the safe harbor provisions, which the GP claimed were added in response to a court case. It's that court case that I'm interested in learning more about, because it sounds like the logic used in that case mirrors my own thoughts on the issue and I'm curious to see if that is the case.
