Not the law makers
The "law makers" didn't change their mind. It's the Copyright office that's made the exemption, as they are allowed to do under the law.

I've tried the YouTube HTML5 beta several times... and I keep turning it back off. Although it performs better for basic video, in Chrome you can't jump ahead in the content like you can with flash, and loading while paused doesn't seem to work (yes, I have a slow connection sometimes). If these limitations remain, it'll never fly.
The PDP-8 was easy to ID... but then I've got a PDP-12 front panel in my basement.
As for the Teletype, "The "HERE IS" key was used to alert another Teletype that it was awake" is somewhat correct, but there's more.... It caused the sending if the teletype's "answerback", a (I recall 20) character sequence that was "programmed" by breaking off tabs on a plastic drum.
Of course, I've seen many Teletypes connected to PDP-8s.
