So What DMCA Exemption Requests Got Rejected?

Like many others yesterday, we covered the news that (surprisingly) the US Copyright Office and the Librarian of Congress granted some consumer friendly DMCA anti-circumvention exemptions for things like jailbreaking smartphones. But, very little coverage has been paid to what exemptions were requested and rejected. First up?

    Subscription based services that offer DRMprotected streaming video where the provider has only made available players for a limited number of platforms, effectively creating an access control that requires a specific operating system version and/or set of hardware to view purchased material; and Motion pictures protected by antiaccess measures, such that access to the motion picture content requires use of a certain platform.

Specifically, this involved someone who asked for an exemption to, say, watch Netflix streaming, with a legit Netflix member account, on a non-approved platform, such as Linux. This was lumped in with another proposal to not just watch streaming content on Linux, but DVDs on Linux, where there might not be a CSS-licensed video player. Such requests have been tried in the past, and basically, the rulemaking effort here said "been there, rejected that," followed up with a "if you want to view the content, buy a "reasonably priced alternative" technology platform. How nice of them.
