A Discovery Ruling in Synopsys, Inc. v. Uniquiti Networks, Inc., 2018 WL 577941, Case No. 17–cv–00561 (N.D. Cal. Jan. 29, 2018), Raises a Novel Issue as to Liability for “Cross-Border” Circumventions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act
"The 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), 17 U.S.C. § 1201(a)(1), and (2), prohibits circumvention of copyright protection systems. Although it has not yet been the subject of a published opinion, presumably the DMCA, like the Copyright Act, does not reach conduct that takes place entirely abroad. Assuming this is correct, if an end user in the United States circumvents a copyright protection system by accessing unlicensed software residing on a server in a foreign country, does the DMCA reach this type of conduct?"
