[dvd-discuss] Hearing on "Sovereign Immunity and the Protection of Intellectual Property"

  The US Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a hearing titled
"Sovereign Immunity and the Protection of Intellectual Property" for
Feb 27 at 10:00AM.  Further details can be found at
Although it's not entirely clear what will be discussed at this
hearing, I suspect the DeCSS and Elcomsoft cases will likely
be brought up.

  In somewhat related news, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee
held a hearing on Feb 12 titled "Theft of American Intellectual Property:
Fighting Crime Abroad and at Home".  It featured the usual cast
of characters including Hilary Rosen, Jack Valenti, and
Jeff Raikes (Microsoft).   Details of the hearing can be found at

a realvideo archive from the meeting at
