"Strategic Access Controls"

I am currently working on an article that will hopefully be published next semester in the Annual Review of the Berkeley Technology Law Journal. I am writing about the impact a recent 8th Circuit decision will have on videogaming law, specifically on the market for massively-multiplayer online games (MMOGs).

A portion of the article deals with the way in which developers and manufacturers have abused anticircumvention laws (found most prominently in the Digital Millenium Copyright Act) under the guise of piracy in order to manufacture an anticompetitive advantage in the market.

Enjoy the cartoon. It's the first time I've actually done something artistic in awhile.
