The EFF, DMCA and homebrew

Almost a month ago I got an email from a law student who (along with several other classmates) was working with the EFF to prepare a request for an exemption to the DMCA which would allow for console jailbreaking and homebrew. I don’t think anything I was able to tell them was actually helpful but in any case progress has been made and the request was filed on Wednesday.

It has a short mention of me along with SwingBall and also referenced another game of mine Pineapple Apocalypse RPG as an example of a homebrew role playing game (all on page 27). So that’s cool and has my ego pretty bloated right now.

You can find a short article about it here and read the actual exemption request here.
