Microsoft Unveils New Copyright Protection Software

This paper gives information about music copyright issues. Microsoft is unveiling copyright protection software to allow rented songs or movies to be used on portable players, cellular phones and other devices. The goal is to make it easier for companies who want customers to rent songs or videos, rather than own them, to also let those users play back the content on portable players. The new technology will work only with newly developed portable players, which Reindorp said are expected to hit the market in the next two to three months.
