Seybold Seminars New York 2002 Leads the Discussion On Digital Rights

Press release from the issuing company

LOS ANGELES--Jan. 31, 2002--As Congress begins to entertain amending the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) of 1988, print and Web publishers continue to struggle between reasonable protection of intellectual property and ease of consumer use. Seybold Seminars New York 2002 examines this dilemma in a full day of discussion devoted to Digital Rights Management, Wednesday, February 20, 2002 10:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. at the Jacob Javits Convention Center. "As the leading event for publishing and creative professionals, Seybold Seminars continues to be the place for lively debate on digital rights,'' said Gene Gable, president, Seybold Seminars and Publications. "Our customers and many of our exhibitors are dependent on rights protection for their income, and consumers must realize that just because it's easy to copy something that doesn't make it right. So we are highlighting the tools and processes that make it more difficult for legally protected works to be illegally copied and distributed.'' Digital rights management means defining, protecting and maintaining intellectual property rights in the online digital world. DRM is becoming a core capability of digital content distribution systems and includes protection for audio, video, e-books and other post-PC devices. Seybold Seminar's Digital Rights Management Day explores how print and Web publishers conduct business with each other through syndication and other forms of business-to-business content distribution. A DRM overview, business models overview and DRM case studies will be discussed as well as a competitive assessment of current vendor solutions available in the market. Bill Rosenblatt, president, GiantSteps Media Technology Strategies, is the moderator.
