It may be a better phrasing, but it's still not true.
No DMCA-like laws will ever work because it falsely places a creative restriction on new works which may or may not use other copyrighted works.
In short: the DMCA and Fair Use can never co-exist peacefully because there will always be people out there who scream "It's mine! Pay me or remove it!" without realizing why their own works are/were popular to begin with.
Abolish the DMCA and copyright. Until this happens, Techdirt will have another 100 years of articles to write.
