Ed Felten: Report from the ACM DRM Workshop

Ed Felten, Freedom To Tinker: “Yesterday I attended the ACM “Digital Rights Management” Workshop [...] There were about 100 attendees, most of them computer scientists, with a few lawyers and Washington policy types thrown in. [...] My main impression was that the speakers were more openly skeptical about DRM than at past conferences. I don’t think this represents any real change in opinion. The real cause, in my view, is that industrial researchers are now starting to say in public what they would only say in private before.”

The above was posted to my personal weblog on November 19, 2002. My name is Peter Lindberg and I am a thirtysomething software developer and dad living in Stockholm, Sweden. Here, you’ll find posts in English and Swedish about whatever happens to interest me for the moment.
