A Small Bit of DMCA Sanity

The court ruled in favor of sanity on the garage door opener DMCA case:

    The Northern District of Illinois District Court today ruled that the universal garage door clicker sold by Skylink Technologies that interoperates with Chamberlain Group garage door openers does not violate the DMCA

    “We’re pleased the court recognized consumers’ reasonable expectation that they can replace lost or damaged remote controls with competing products without violating the DMCA. Congress clearly did not intend to give copyright owners the power to veto interoperable consumer products when it passed the DMCA” said EFF staff attorney Gwen Hinze. [EFF]
