+ - Brazil forbids DRM on public domain->

Submitted by nunojsilva
nunojsilva (1019800) writes "Cory Doctorow reports that the brazilian equivalent of DMCA explicitly forbids using DRM-like techniques on works which are in the public domain.

Brazil has just created the best-ever implementation of WCT. In Brazil's version of the law, you can break DRM without breaking the law, provided you're not also committing a copyright violation.

This means that, unlike the US, where it is illegal to break DRM, in Brazil it is illegal to break the public domain."
