IEEE comes out against DMCA

In a recently published article in the IEEE's magazine, The Institute, the organization is calling for congress to take a second look at the DMCA.

To quote the article: "Two recent court battles, as well as concerns raised by members, have prompted IEEE-USA?s Intellectual Property Committee to re- examine its position on the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and, in a pair of position statements, to urge the U.S. Congress to clarify some of the law?s provisions"

It's not a complete derision of the DMCA, but it's definitely a strong movement against the encryption provisions and the web take down provisions.
