Great! We are at San Jose State University, and doing research with
broadcast digital audio and digital video. We are keen on the philosophy of
internet broadcast, and want to develop a system that conforms to the world
outside of academia, since many of our students move up into the major
networks after their studies here.

We are very interested in the question of copyrights, and at this moment we
are putting together a segment of our weekly technology show "Sound Bytes"
featuring internet broadcast, the rules of the road, copyright issues, etc.
We are currently looking for a legal guest who is hep to the internet and
law. If you plan to be in the Bay Area in August, or if you have a Bay Area
based comrade, let us know!
