The author of this article is John R. Perkins, Jr. John Perkins is an associate in the Intellectual Property Litigation Practice Group at Alston & Bird, LLP's Charlotte, North Carolina office. This is a lead article. It discusses a solution to copyright infringement on the Internet. The solution combines legal and technical aspects so the solution is very specific but also practical. The paper proposes a solution to use technological protection similar to that found in the federal statute prohibiting circumvention of technological protection measures. The paper then concludes with how difficult his solution and other proposed changes will be to enact because of opposition it will receive from many sides.
