Inside Move: CEA spotlights copyright

Mayflower hosts rivaling events

Today, the Consumer Electronics Assn. is hosting a daylong debate on copyright issues in the digital age, hoping to promote the thesis that consumers may lose out if Hollywood gets its way in extending copyright protection to the Internet and digital TV.

CEA event will be held at the posh Mayflower Hotel in downtown Washington; late Monday, the Recording Industry Assn. of America and Motion Picture Assn. of America announced they and other heavyweight members of the Copyright Assembly will hold an afternoon press conference — at the Mayflower Hotel. Fresh off the Napster victory, the entertainment industry doesn’t dispute that it’s taking the offensive. If you’ve got it, flaunt it.

Panelists scheduled to speak at the rivaling CEA event include Napster veep for public policy Manus Cooney, rap artist Chuck D. and Rep. W.J. “Billy” Tauzin (R-La.), as well as MPAA and RIAA representatives.
