Does anyone know where the quote footnoted "20" in the Softman decision
comes from?

"The only countervailing forces favoring users are those rights specifically
granted to users by federal law. In this context more than any other,
therefore, it is justifiable to fear that removing or eviscerating those
user rights may bring the whole edifice crumbling down."

The reference is "Lemley, Intellectual Property, at 1283."

Particularly I'd like to know if this was pre-or post-DMCA.

The package known as UCITA would render many of the arguments in this
decision without foundation -- and would indeed bring the whole edifice
crumbling down, if it hasn't already.
