Copyright Issues in Digital Media

Various authors, Congressional Budget Office, Aug 12, 2004
Commentary by Stephen Downes

For people familiar with the copyright debate this essay won't introduce a lot that is new, but is worth a read nonetheless in order to view the issues from the point of view of economic efficiency, the only consideration countenanced by the authors. Overall, and in this light, what follows is a balanced and subtle consideration of the issues. People new to the issue will find this an excellent starting point, though they should be aware that other considerations, such as privacy, due process under law, and freedom of expression, also have their place within the debate.
