Subject: Re: your letter to the copyright office

I have just read of your letter to the Copyright Office claiming that your clients reject the view that consumers should expect perpetual access to a copyrighted work.

I have only one response.

Please identify, with specificity, the section in the Copyright Act where it grants copyright owners the authority to deny access to a protected work that has been legitimately obtained.  I can save you lots of time, you won't find it.  The right of the consumer to access a work protected under the act is implicit in the sale.  The consumer did not rent or lease authorization to "access" the protected work, it was an outright "purchase" of that authorization and the revocation of that authorization is not permitted.

Have a nice day,
