Digital Watermarking And Tracking Of Intellectual Property

I recently spoke at the Governor's Conference on the Arts in Los Angeles, put on by the California Arts Council (visit them at www.californiaculture.net).

I spoke on the subject of intellectual property issues for the 21st Century, emphasizing digital watermarking/tracking technologies. I promised those that provided me with resources that I would post my findings on line. Although the speech was brief and the topic (as always) morphed somewhat, the following are my notes in preparation for the speech, and a list of the many resources available on the web for review of this very interesting and relevant issue .Thanks again to those who provided data or resources. There were many.
