News at 10: Using Garage Door Openers Illegal!
I've said it before: the DMCA is a bad law.

The good news is that some courts are beginning to agree.

The bad news is that the DMCA still makes it illegal for you to use third-party garage door openers. See page 63:

THE COURT: ... Isn't it a logical conclusions from your argument that your client's customers are all in violation of 1201(a)(1)? ...

MR. FINK: I would say under the statutory language that's true.

THE COURT: Do you intend to bring an enforcement action against those customers?

You decide! The RIAA and DirecTV people have certainly shown it can be done.
