Abstract:

    Introduction to the Impact of Public Policy on Computer Graphics (Tuesday, 8:30 – 10:15 am) or equivalent knowledge. The tutorial assumes a fundamental understanding of public policy, its effect on our professional lives, and how it is effected and affected.

    Topics
    The concerns of owners and users of intellectual property, the origins of intellectual property rights and copyright, current laws regarding copyright (national and international), the tension between copyright and free speech, digital-rights-management (DRM) systems, implications of the use of DRM, and possible responses (from individuals, ACM, and ACM SIGGRAPH).

    Description
    This second course in the policy sequence gives computer graphics practitioners, developers, and researchers an in-depth look at the growing conflicts between owners and users of intellectual property.
