Finally, A DMCA Plaintiff loses...

A little late in the posting, but a few weeks ago Judge Rebecca Pallmeyer denied Chamberlain's motion for summary judgment on its DMCA claim against Skylink. Chamberlain makes garage door openers; Skylink made a kind of "universal remote" for garage door openers, so if you lost your original, you could buy their cheaper replacement rather than forking over extra $$ for the official Chamberlain replacement.

There's a lot to say about this decision, including the number of questions that it didn't answer, but I'll have to deal with that later. Right now, I have quite a few RIAA fires to put out. In the meantime, check out these links:
