Protecting Intellectual Property in Digital Multimedia Networks
July 2003 (vol. 36 no. 7)
pp. 39-45
Ahmet M. Eskicioglu, Brooklyn College of the City University of New York

Computer and communications network improvements offer intellectual-property owners new ways to reproduce, distribute, and market their IP. One problem with digital distribution and storage technologies, however, is the formidable threat of piracy. Thus, understanding the opportunities provided by the ever-expanding information infrastructure and its impact on digital IP is essential.

Proponents and opponents of protecting IP with technical measures have presented strong arguments. Hopefully, these discussions will lead to a general consensus regarding protection technologies and a common interpretation of consumers? rights in the digital age.
