"Entertainment giants will face digital media companies before
federal officials Wednesday in the contentious debate over
intellectual property regulation on the Internet."
"This will be the preseason skirmish to some significant
legislative hearings, which have the potential of resulting in new
legislation in the next two to four years in the area of
copyrights," said Jonathan Potter, executive director of the
Digital Media Association (DiMA), an alliance of 75 companies
including Amazon.com and Spinner.com...."
"The hearing is part of a study required by the Digital
Millennium Copyright Act, and these agencies will report to
Congress regarding further changes to copyright law, Potter
"The entertainment behemoths say they want to ensure copyright
holders are properly compensated for their works on the Web, but
digital media companies say Hollywood is trying to stifle
technology to keep control over distribution. Experts say billions
of dollars could be involved."
