The International Federation of Library Associations has submitted a written briefing instead, on the specific problems of the protection of digital locks applied to broadcast content (via A2K):
At the May meting of this committee the Delegation of the European Union claimed that the provisions of the Information Society Directive represented a solution to this problem. This is also stated in the document SCCR/15/5. (p.3.)
So far TPMs have not been implemented on broadcasts, but the experience of Sound Archives is that the procedures prescribed by the Information Society Directive are too complicated and costly to be of any practical value. They are simply not compatible with modern cost effective library management. It is necessary to find other solutions if future TPM protected radio and television programmes are to be preserved for posterity.
