Software Copyright Law

I’m taking a digital intellectual property law class as part of the University of Utah’s computer science program. So far it’s been very dry, but we’ve been given a take-home exam which is to examine and propose changes to section 117 of the copyright act. While doing research I found a quote worthy of sharing:

‘Trying to make bits uncopyable is like trying to make water
not wet. The sooner people accept this, and build business
models that take this into account, the sooner people will
start making money again.’ — Bruce Schneier
