Ever since late October, I’ve been painfully coming to terms with the decisions made by the acting Librarian of Congress, David Mao, who has adopted exemptions recommended by the Register of Copyrights, Maria Pallante, regarding the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

There is a special provision of the law, Section 1201, which regulates the conditions under which people may “rip” (or circumvent the technological measures that control access) audiovisual copyrighted works on DVDs, Blu-Rays, or digitally transmitted (including streamed) material.

If you watch your students use Google you will probably observe that most begin their search by simply typing the title of the assignment verbatim into Google (i.e., Iranian Hostage Crisis).
