Fair Use, Intellectual Property, and the Information Economy
Because the growing use of cryptography and other security technology by the entertainment industry is an important fact of life in our field, the Financial Crypto ’99 Program Committee decided to hold a one-hour panel discussion on Fair Use, Intellectual Property, and the Information Economy. Roughly the first half of the session was devoted to the moderator's introduction and five-minute talks by each of the panelists. Approximately 10 days before the conference, the moderator distributed her list of questions (Section 2 below) to the panelists and told them to prepare to speak for five minutes on one of them or on a similar question about the interplay of technological and non-technological aspects of Intellectual Property (IP) management. The rest of the session consisted of a lively audience-driven discussion.
