Recent information includes:

Discusses plans by RIAA to add “watermarks” to DVDs, not only to permit
detection of piracy, but also to control the ability to play the content.
IDG.net (25.Aug.2000), “TRUSTe Learns a Privacy Lesson the Hard Way”:
A discussion of how the problem happened, how TRUSTe responded and how other
organizations might need to also be “on guard”.
Washington Post (27.Aug.2000), “In Maryland, a Murder in the Making”:
The homicide rate is down overall, but one-third to one-half of slain women
are victims of an intimate partner, about the same as in 1976, when the
first wave of shelters opened for battered wives and girlfriends. An array
of new laws and programs developed during the last two decades has yet to
overcome two obstacles. Those who most need help often feel conflicted about
asking – ashamed, torn and frightened. And the system intended to protect
them remains fragmented and uneven – almost impossible to comprehend and
negotiate without an aggressive lawyer or advocate, which many women still
do not have. This is the story of how the system failed one woman, killed by
her husband, and chronicled in part through her journal.
