Postigo describes the legislative history of the DMCA and how policy 'blind spots' produced a law at odds with existing and emerging consumer practices. 

Yet the DMCA established a political and legal rationale brought to bear on digital media, the Internet, and other new technologies. Drawing on social movement theory and science and technology studies, Postigo presents case studies of resistance to increased control over digital media, describing a host of tactics that range from hacking to lobbying.
