This Article provides a basic overview of the recent amendments to the copyright law, including the DMCA and recent developments generally, in relation to the protection of digital works. While portions of the discussion are directed to general copyright law, the primary discussion is directed specifically to legal theories used to protect or defend digital works. Interestingly, the DMCA amendments affect only slightly the rights incident to a copyrighted work, but provide significant protection against unauthorized access to copyrighted works.
