ARROW at the 29th IPA Congress in Cape Town
At the 29th Congress of the International Publishers Association in Cape Town (12-14 June 2012), the ARROW system was mentioned by several speakers. Piero Attanasio of AIE made a presentation of the system, including it in the broader context of the "Technologies for rights information management". The core of the speech was to show how the ARROW approach is coherent with a trend towards the implementation of standards and technologies for the management of rights data as a separate function from the management of rights.
The ARROW achievements were also included in other two speeches by ARROW consortium members: Anne Bergmann of FEP mentioned Arrow in the framework of the description of the EC policies in digital publishing field; Magdalena Vinent of CEDRO, who spoke in her position as IFRRO chair, referred to the ARROW system as an example of new functions for collective management organisations in the digital era.
Finally, and probably most importantly, ARROW has been mentioned in the speech of Lynette Owen, who was asked to provide an overview of the most important trends in rights management.
