Why is the dmca bad?



Hi everyone! I need to write an essay tomorrow about a law to get rid of, I figured, why not the DMCA?? However, I’m having some trouble getting simple facts about the DMCA, most of the stuff is political mumbo-jumbo jargon. Anyone care to reply with a few reasons why the DMCA should be eliminated/changed? TIA!!
