Talk Abstract
Plausible and Implausible Copyright Protection Techniques

Cynthia Dwork, IBM Almaden Research Center

Copyright protection for digital content --- software, still images, video, online databases, text, etc. --- is emerging as an area of intense interest and activity. It is also an area of intense hype. This talk will discuss several proposed software techniques for enhancing copyright protection and will examine the implicit and potentially unreasonable infrastructure assumptions upon which some of these techniques are based.
