Conference Report (H. Rep. 105-796) (pages 63-64):
SECTION 103. COPYRIGHT PROTECTION SYSTEMS AND COPYRIGHT MANAGEMENT INFORMATION
The Senate recedes to House section 103 with modification. The two new WIPO Treaties include substantively identical provisions on technological measures of protection (also commonly referred to as the "black box"’ or "anticircumvention"’ provisions). These provisions require contracting parties to provide "adequate legal protection and effective legal remedies against the circumvention of effective technological measures that are used by authors in connection with the exercise of their rights under this Treaty or the Berne Convention and that restrict acts, in respect of their works, which are not authorized by the authors concerned or permitted by law."
