Copyright Website to address issues of Infringement, Fair Use and Circumvention at National Association of Broadcasters Convention

FOSTER CITY, CA - April 21, 2001 - Copyright Website will be discussing new developments in copyright law on the Intellectual Property Rights panel being held today at the NAB 2001 show at noon, Ballroom G at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Copyright Website will be represented by Benedict O'Mahoney, President of Lexbid LLC (the holding company of the Copyright Website). "The Copyright Website is always excited to further the dialogue on issues of control and consumption in the digital world," stated Mr. O'Mahoney. "For example, the tension between the long standing doctrine of fair use and the anti-circumvention provisions of the DMCA won't go away until there is a rational balancing of legitimate interests."

The Intellectual Property Rights panel will address the unique ownership and control issues of New Media, including copyright questions of repurposed content and original interactive content.

The Intellectual Property Rights panel is being presented as part of the NAB Multimedia World New Media Professionals Conference. This conference offers a multi-faceted approach to keeping pace with new media technologies and applications such as the Internet, streaming media, DVD and other emerging platforms. Business sessions focus on making investments, creating alliances and protecting intellectual property. Creative sessions offer successful case studies enhanced with demonstrations. Convergence sessions address enhanced/interactive television, asset management for multi-platform use and the intertwining of traditional and new media.
