The Digital Future Coalition (DFC) was a U.S.-based copyright advocacy organization established in 1995. Founded by leading scholars and activists in the library and public interest world, the DFC was a precursor to organizations like Public Knowledge and the Library Research Coalition.
The DFC had at its peak at least 42 institutional members, drawn from library associations, scholarly societies, public interest groups, and IT-related commercial entities. The organization was active in the legislative debates and lobbying surrounding the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, the Copyright Term Extension Act, and proposed database protection legislation, and was instrumental in inserting limiting provisions and exceptions into the DMCA and CTEA, and in defeating the proposed database protection legislation.
