Ciao a tutti.

Il  01/12/2003    si è   costituito    il "Digital    Media   Project"
(http://www.chiariglione.org/project/) un progetto nato dalla mente di
Leonardo  Chiariglione  (CSELT, MPEG)  e   di  cui potete leggere   il
"manifesto" qui:

http://www.chiariglione.org/manifesto/

Penso sia un progetto da seguire con  attenzione (il che non significa
essere d'accordo, naturalmente).  Ma Chiariglione e` riuscito a creare
un'organizzazione (formalmente no-profit) che riunisce:

- British Telecommunications 	(UK)
- Enterprise of the Future 	(US)
- École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (CH)
- MPEG LA                       (US)
- Multimedia Architectures 	(JP)
- Sociedad Digital Autores y Editores 	(ES)
- Telecom Italia 	        (IT)
- University of Tokyo 	        (JP)

E che conta l'appoggio esterno (per ora) di Microsoft, Sony e
Matshita, tra gli altri.

In questo momento, bisognerebbe spargere la voce su questo:

THE DIGITAL MEDIA PROJECT

Press release

2003/12/03

Digital  Media Project issues  call for submissions regarding fair use
and other rights -- DMP signed into official existence on 1st December
2003 in Geneva

The  Digital  Media Project issues a    call for submissions regarding
traditional rights and  usages  usually associated with  content usage
such  as  fair use, first  sale,  privacy etc. as  well as traditional
rights and usages  associated with  copyright ownership, distribution,
attribution, retail and  other business models  along with other  more
general human  rights to  communicate    so that  these  can  best  be
accommodated in a  digital, trusted bitstream/file  environment, or in
other words, "mapped" to the digital domain.

The  Digital Media Project, which as  part of its  genesis published a
Digital Media Manifesto  on 30th of September,  was signed into formal
existence as   a non-profit  organization based in   Geneva on  1st of
December 2003.

The DMP  mission  is "to   promote continuing successful  development,
deployment  and use  of  Digital Media   that  respect  the  rights of
creators and rights  holders to exploit their  works, the  wish of end
users to  fully enjoy the benefits  of Digital Media and the interests
of various value-chain   players  to provide products   and  services,
according to the principles laid down in the Digital Media Manifesto".

The founding members elected a  Board of Directors. The immediate task
of the Board is to put in place the organisation, recruit new members,
plan for the first DMP General Assembly  and to organise a workshop on
"Mapping of traditional  rights  and usages from  the  analogue to the
digital space".

Sarebbe una buona cosa raccogliere quanto  piu` materiale possibile su
"fair use, first sale, privacy etc.  as well as traditional rights and
usages associated with copyright ownership, distribution, attribution,
retail and  other business models along with  other more general human
rights" in modo da  poter avere un  ruolo attivo all'interno del DMP o
quantomeno far  sapere al DMP (e  al mondo) che gli attori industriali
che il DMP ha raccolto intorno a se` non sono "tutto il mondo".

Per  ora, raccogliero` i contributi   che vorrete  inviare tramite  la
mailing  list   "copywhat a lists.perchetopi.org"  [0]   (scusandomi  in
anticipo con i membri della mailing list  per il traffico aggiuntivo).
Per  facilitare   il  lavoro,  chiedo  a    tutti coloro  che vorranno
contribuire di mettere nel subject delle loro  e-mail la stringa "[DMP
CONTRIB]".

ciao e grazie,

andrea

Hi all.

On       Dec   1,     2003      the       "Digital Media      Project"
(http://www.chiariglione.org/project) was officially born.  The DMP is
an offspring of Leonardo Chiariglione (CSELT, MPEG) - you can read the
project's manifesto here:

http://www.chiariglione.org/manifesto/

I think we should follow closely the activities of this project (which
doesn't mean agreeing with  it,  of course).  Prof. Chiariglione   has
managed to create an  organization (which is formally a not-for-profit
one) composed by:

- British Telecommunications 	(UK)
- Enterprise of the Future 	(US)
- École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (CH)
- MPEG LA                       (US)
- Multimedia Architectures 	(JP)
- Sociedad Digital Autores y Editores 	(ES)
- Telecom Italia 	        (IT)
- University of Tokyo 	        (JP)

and   that counts   on  the  external (up   to now)  contributions  of
Microsoft, Sony and Matshita, amongst others.

Right now, it would be necessary to spread information on this:

THE DIGITAL MEDIA PROJECT

Press release

2003/12/03

Digital  Media Project issues  call for submissions regarding fair use

The  Digital  Media Project issues a    call for submissions regarding
traditional rights and  usages  usually associated with  content usage
such  as  fair use, first  sale,  privacy etc. as  well as traditional
rights and usages  associated with  copyright ownership, distribution,
attribution, retail and  other business models  along with other  more
general human  rights to  communicate    so that  these  can  best  be
accommodated in a  digital, trusted bitstream/file  environment, or in
other words, "mapped" to the digital domain.

The  Digital Media Project, which as  part of its  genesis published a
Digital Media Manifesto  on 30th of September,  was signed into formal
existence as   a non-profit  organization based in   Geneva on  1st of
December 2003.

The DMP  mission  is "to   promote continuing successful  development,
deployment  and use  of  Digital Media   that  respect  the  rights of

I  think it would   be a good thing  to   collect as much material  as
possible  on "fair  use,    first sale, privacy    etc.   as  well  as
traditional rights  and usages   associated with  copyright ownership,
distribution, attribution, retail and other business models along with
other more general  human  rights", in order   to have an active  role
inside   DMP or, at  least,  let  DMP  (and the  world)  know that DMP
industrial actors are not "all the world".

Right  now, I'll collect the  contributions  you will send through the
"copywhat a lists.perchetopi.org" [0] mailing  list  (I  hope  the  list
members will excuse me for the added traffic).  To  ease the work, I'd
ask everybody who will  contribute to  prefix their e-mails'  subjects
with the string "[DMP CONTRIB]".

Bye and thank you,

andrea
