    Abstract

    This article examines the emerging law regarding the circumvention of videogame TPMs. It identifies three concerns: a lack of unity between copyright interests and those protected by TPMs; the necessarily contrived arguments advanced to support claims to copyright infringement; and the disconnect between ownership of rights and control of interests.
