Varying Approaches. Readers now want and expect to find your material in multiple digital formats. But digital information is, for better and for worse, inherently copy-able. As Internet security expert Bruce Schneier has said, "Digital files cannot be made uncopyable, any more than water can be made not wet." And as the music industry before us has discovered, when you offer digital products, it's difficult to simultaneously meet the expectations of users and producers. In this session, publishers will discuss how and why they use--or eschew--DRM and the experiences that led to their current solutions.
