Presentation Description

Even as new technologies expand our ability to bring massive amounts information across vast distances in little time, those technologies also expand the ability to pirate information without regard for the value lost to its creator. Attempts to protect the value of factual information for its originator go back to a century-old Supreme Court decision involving war, intrigue and some of the most dynamic personalities of the time. Today’s battle is just as compelling, and appears to be approaching a climax.
