Subject: Forbes on Piracy

The September 9th issue of FORBES magazine arrived here today
with the cover story "Piracy: Can you stop it in the digital age?"

The 6-page feature story touches on a number of issues related to
the illicit copying of digitized product, especially DVD videos and
computer software.

It discusses, in overview, various digital signature systems,
cryptographic devices (e.g., "crytolopes"), and even SCAM (the
Stanford Copy Analysis Mechanism which "roams the internet in
search of words or phrases that its masters have reason to believe
may have been illicitly borrowed.")

I would repost the entire article here, but that would be wrong.
