Abstract:     
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act inserts many complex and alien concepts into US copyright law. This article explores that enactment by positing four scenarios, and attempting to determine what the practical impact should be on each as a result of this omnibus amendment. The four are: parents' keeping pornography away from minors; copyright management information, from names of movie stars to book dust jackets; determining when an ISP sees a "red flag" that should alert it to copyright infringement; and attempting to pigeonhole digital watermarks into their appropriate category under the new law.
