Overview Edit

The underlying project which resulted in this report was designed to assess issues and derive research topics and policy recommendations related to the nature, evolution, and use of the Internet and other networks, and to the generation, distribution, and protection of content accessed through networks.

The Report offers a framework for the evaluation and construction of public policy, as well as a variety of specific conclusions and recommendations designed to help legislators, courts, administrators, and the public to understand what is at issue, to formulate questions clearly, and to assess alternatives. The focus on copyright derives from the observation that copyright protects a large variety of the IP frequently encountered by the public and has the highest visibility in the debates over IP and the information infrastructure.
