Experts Gather for Conference on Digital Rights Management
Held Thursday, February 27 through Saturday, March 1, the Law and Technology of Digital Rights Management conference will bring together leaders from business, the non-profit sector, government and academia. Panelists will address the legal, technological and public policy concerns spurred by digital rights management systems - the technological codes built into music CDs, movies on DVD, home computers, digital televisions, stereo equipment and portable devices to protect copyrights, restrict use or track consumer use of products. Panelists will discuss recent developments and debate the future of content protection, fair use policies and consumer privacy. A keynote address will be given by U.S. Representative Zoe Lofgren (D-California). The conference is sponsored by the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology; the Berkeley Technology Law Journal; the Samuelson Law, Technology and Pubic Policy Clinic; and the School of Information Management & Systems.
