The digital dilemma : intellectual property in the information age by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 970 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imagine sending a magazine article to 10 friends-making photocopies, putting them in envelopes, adding postage, and mailing them. Now consider how much easier it is to send that article to those 10 friends as an attachment to e-mail. Or to post the article on your own site on the World Wide Web. The ease of modifying or copying digitized material and the proliferation of computer networking have raised fundamental questions about copyright and patent--intellectual property protections rooted in the U.S. Constitution. Hailed for quick and convenient access to a world of material, the Internet also poses serious economic issues for those who create and market that material. If people can so easily send music on the Internet for free, for example, who will pay for music? This book presents the multiple facets of digitized intellectual property, defining terms, identifying key issues, and exploring alternatives. It follows the complex threads of law, business, incentives to creators, the American tradition of access to information, the international context, and the nature of human behavior. Technology is explored for its ability to transfer content and its potential to protect intellectual property rights. The book proposes research and policy recommendations as well as principles for policymaking

Developing a digital national library for undergraduate science, mathematics, engineering, and technology education : report of a workshop by National research council( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In collaboration with the National Research Council's (NRC's) Computer Science and Telecommunications Board, the Center for Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Education responded to a request from the National Science Foundation (nsf) by forming a project steering committee consisting of representatives from the NRC's four postsecondary boards and committees. The Steering Committee commissioned 10 "white papers" from individuals with expertise in science, mathematics, engineering, and technology education, technological aspects of digital libraries, library science, and economic and legal aspects of this rapidly evolving area of knowledge and research. These commissioned papers served as the basis for plenary and break-out discussions at a workshop that was held at the National Academy of Sciences on August 7-8, 1997. Issues considered included curricular, pedagogical, and user issues; logistic and technology issues; and economic and legal issues. Appendices include the commissioned papers, workshop agenda, and a list of workshop participants and nsf observers. (Contains 14 references.) (Ask)

Achieving effective acquisition of information technology in the Department of Defense by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the military, information technology (IT) has enabled profound advances in weapons systems and the management and operation of the defense enterprise. A significant portion of the Department of Defense (DOD) budget is spent on capabilities acquired as commercial IT commodities, developmental IT systems that support a broad range of warfighting and functional applications, and IT components embedded in weapons systems. The ability of the DOD and its industrial partners to harness and apply IT for warfighting, command and control and communications, logistics, and transportation has contributed enormously to fielding the world's best defense force. However, despite the DOD's decades of success in leveraging IT across the defense enterprise, the acquisition of IT systems continues to be burdened with serious problems. To address these issues, the National Research Council assembled a group of IT systems acquisition and T & E experts, commercial software developers, software engineers, computer scientists and other academic researchers. The group evaluated applicable legislative requirements, examined the processes and capabilities of the commercial IT sector, analyzed DOD's concepts for systems engineering and testing in virtual environments, and examined the DOD acquisition environment. The present volume summarizes this analysis and also includes recommendations on how to improve the acquisition, systems engineering, and T & E processes to achieve the DOD's network-centric goals."--Publisher's description
Strategic management of information and communication technology : the United States Air Force experience with Y2K by Mark P Haselkorn( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes lessons learned from the efforts of the United States Air Force (hereafter simply USAF, or Air Force) to address a widely dispersed threat to its information infrastructure. The Air Force's response to the Year 2000 (Y2K) evolved over more than five years and involved thousands of people throughout the 108 USAF bases, interacting in varying, often nontraditional ways to address perceived threats. In addition, hundreds more people at numerous major Air Force units were active in developing guidance and support packages and in monitoring their implementation. This report is perhaps the most detailed publicly available case study of the Y2K response in a single organization and the lessons learned from that response. Although a great deal was written about Y2K before the event, surprisingly little analysis was conducted after January 1, 2000. The fact that Y2K did not result in widespread catastrophic failures has led many people, particularly those outside the information and communications technology (ICT) field, to label it a nonevent or even a hoax - and doubtless discouraged extensive analysis after the fact. However, as this report makes clear, the experience serves as a source of critical lessons for strategic management of ICT and echoes earlier findings of analysts in the field of information systems management. In addition, other sources make it clear that enough problems were experienced in the course of the Y2K rollover to demonstrate the reality of the problem and the importance of remediation efforts (GAO 2000). Serious known disruptions were avoided in the banking and insurance sectors, two NATO nation spy satellites went down for two days, and numerous other documented failures were either avoided or responded to in real time during rollover. These lessons and related recommendations are described in Chapters 2, 3, and 4, and they cover the management of ICT complexity, aligning organizational and ICT strategies, and minimizing and mitigating ICT risk. A final brief concluding chapter focuses on the general lesson of viewing technology risk within its social and organizational context. Together, these chapters present general implications for large, complex organizations that rely on ICT to achieve their mission in the face of risks in such areas as information assurance, information security, and critical infrastructure protection (CIP). The recommendations, naturally, focus on the Air Force and its context, but they are applicable to other large, complex, ICT-dependent organizations as well. The fact that Y2K did not produce major sustained disruption for the Air Force or other organizations makes it a more valuable source for long-term lessons for operational and strategic management of ICT systems. Rather than focusing on fundamental flaws and cascading effects, the bulk of this analysis is relevant to the overall strategic management of ICT, including maintenance and modernization, life-cycle management of systems and software, functional interdependency and continuity, guidance policies and certification, system ownership and responsibility, training and organizational roles, and security and information assurance

Summary of discussions at a planning meeting on cyber-security and the insider threat to classified information by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

8 editions published between 1900 and 2000 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a summary of discussions at a planning meeting held November 1-2, 2000 to examine the prospects of initiating an NRC study on cyber-security and the insider threat to classified information. The meeting's focus was on the threat to classified systems and information because the political and organizational issues that often arise with protection policies and practices (e.g., rights to privacy) are considerably fewer and less intense than if sensitive unclassified information (especially non-governmental information) is involved. The meeting also addressed threats other than insider threats as well as non-classified computer systems."--Publisher's website
