Subject: NINCH ANNOUNCMENT: Impt. Intellectual Property Meeting

April 10, 1997

Below is the announcement for a most important 2-day forum at the Library
of Congress on Technology-Based Intellectual Property Management. As you
know, I think the intersection of copyright legislation, rights-management
technology and licensing is of primary importance for us all to understand
and influence where we can.

Forum on Technology-Based Intellectual Property Management

Sponsored by:

U.S. Copyright Office
White House National Economic Council
Interactive Multimedia Association (IMA)
White House Office of Science and Technology Policy

Dates and Location:

April 28-29, 1997
Mumford Room
Sixth Floor, Madison Building
Library of Congress
1st and Independence Streets, SE
Washington, DC

Electronic Commerce for Content is the annual inter-sector/
inter-industry forum on issues in technology-based intellectual
property management. Building on the success of the first forum
held by the Interactive Multimedia Association and the U.S. Copyright
Office in March 1996, the forum brings together different creator,
industry, and user perspectives on requirements, standards, and
implementation. The additional sponsors and the increased scope of
program reflects the growing importance of infrastructure for
managing access to content and the progress made in many areas over
the past year.

Priority on the program has been given to new material and
reports on significant work in progress. As before, the intent
of the forum is to promote understanding of critical technical
issues and related market development problems across industries
and value chains. Although the focus is on standards and
architectural issues rather than proprietary solutions and products,
participants are encouraged to bring and share product information
and other literature.

The agenda for this year's forum includes:

* progress reports on digital object identifiers from the
Association of American Publishers, the Corporation for
National Research Initiatives, and the Copyright Office.

* presentations on Internet controls from Netscape
Communications, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3), and the
Stanford digital library project

* a panel by IMPRIMATUR, an international consortium on
copyright management supported by the European Commission, on
developments in Europe and the consortium's work to date

* a presentation by Mark Stefik, Xerox PARC, on the Digital
Rights Management Language

* a panel on the several initiatives to use technology to
mediate use of demographic and personal information on the
World Wide Web

* a panel on the policy implications of technology-mediated
access to content
