ET SIG: Intellectual Property Protection
Please note location change this month. See below.
Florian Pestoni, Software Engineer, IBM Almaden
With the advent of consumer grade digital technology, content such as music and movies is no longer bound to the physical media that carries it. This presents new challenges to content owners, who want to protect their intellectual property while at the same time extracting economic benefit from it. On the other hand, consumers want ease of use and convenience.
In this talk, I will describe some of the existing and proposed solutions, which represent different trade-offs between the needs of the parties involved. While technology such as cryptography plays an important role in this space, a complete solution usually relies on legal and policy aspects; I will touch upon some of these issues to give you a complete picture of this very complex space.
