An article on Yahoo News <http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061123/ 
ap_on_hi_te/digital_copyright> dealing with recent copyright  
exemptions granted by the  US Library of Congress had an item of  
interest for classiccmp listers buried down at the bottom:

"He granted two exemptions dealing with computer obsolescence. For  
computer software and video games that require machines no longer  
available, copy-protection controls may be circumvented for archival  
purposes. Locks on computer programs also may be broken if they  
require dongles — small computer attachments — that are damaged and  
can't be replaced."
