It would most likely be under Section 1201 of the DMCA:

"Sec. 1201. Circumvention of copyright protection systems

(a) VIOLATIONS REGARDING CIRCUMVENTION OF TECHNOLOGICAL MEASURES- (1)(A) No
person shall circumvent a technological measure that effectively controls
access to a work protected under this title."
