‘DRM’ Protects Downloads, But Does It Stifle Innovation?

From The Wall Street Journal:

The Online Journal asked Fritz Attaway, a senior executive with the Motion Picture Association of America, to debate the issue over email with Wendy Seltzer, a law professor who specializes in intellectual property and First Amendment issues.

Seltzer does a great job cutting to core issues: DRM technologies (and the DMCA) prevent people from using content in ways that ought to be allowed under the fair use provisions of U.S. copyright law; and the entertainment industry wants people to keep paying over and over to view content they’ve already paid for.
