No easy way to protect content

Author: JT Smith

From a Gartner Group column at CNet: "Sklyarov's arrest represents the lengths to which content owners will go to protect their
copyrights -- whether the material is in digital form or hard copy ... Accordingly, they have become more aggressive in taking legal
action against those they deem copyright violators.

This approach largely represents a rearguard action. Even if authorities were to prosecute and
convict Sklyarov, the Russian company that employs him, ElcomSoft, would continue in business.
U.S. companies often have difficulty getting copyrights enforced in other countries, especially
developing nations such as Russia."
