Third, section 1201(c)(3)—the no mandate provision—in the final text of this legislation is identical to the provision that emerged from the Senate Judiciary Committee over six months ago. The changes proposed by the House Commerce Committee, which threatened to open a huge loophole in the protections afforded by the legislation, were rejected by the conference committee. The no mandate provision means what it says, and what it says is this: there is no design mandate in this legislation, other than the negative mandate to avoid designing a product primarily for the purpose of circumventing an effective technological measure. The addition, by the conference committee, of specific provisions concerning certain protections used to control copying of audiovisual works in analog formats does not change the meaning of section 1201(c)(3) one iota. If the conferees had intended that these new provisions were to have had any impact on the application of the `no mandate’ provisions to other technological protection measures, we would have said so. We did not, in fact, we said the opposite.
