Beyond Copyright: The Brave New World of Digital Rights Management
Thursday,16 August
2:15 - 4 pm
Petree Hall D

As more intellectual property becomes widely available in digital formats, the world is increasingly concerned about how to protect text, music, and images against unauthorized use, and about the sometimes conflicting rights of creators and users. Issues surrounding the use of MP3, the Secure Digital Music Initiative, and the DVD Content Scrambling System are widely debated in the technical, business, and popular media. This panel presents all sides of the issues and speculation about how they might be resolved.
