Submission + - New DMCA Exemptions Announced->

BlakeReid writes: The Library of Congress has announced new exemptions from the DMCA's anti-circumvention measures, including:

DVDs for fair use by remixers, documentary filmmakers, and film professors
Unlocking and jailbreaking cell phones
Video games for security research
Software protected by obsolete dongles
eBooks for text-to-speech conversion

The exemptions are good until the next rulemaking, presumably in 2012 or 2013.

I was actually thinking of these elements of the first claim:

revising said retrieved first list on said client computer system using said management tool; and updating said first list in said list database to reflect the revision to said retrieved first list.

The same entity is not likely to revise a list on a client computer and update it on the server computer, hence the joint infringement problem. However, I do agree about the ridiculous breadth of the other independent claims you mention.
