This report analyses the disclosure issues raised by technically-imposed restrictions on the use of digital content. It focuses on the application of copy control and digital rights management technologies in three areas: copy-protected CDs; online music, and DVD regional coding. In each of these areas, the report examines the kinds of restrictions that are commonly placed on usage of the products (for example, restrictions on making back-ups or private copies) and assesses the adequacy of the information that is provided to consumers concerning such restrictions. (A bibliography is included. Contains 28 footnotes and 3 figures.)
