Whether or not you tuned in on Sunday night to watch the Grammy awards, there was one bit of information for IT asset managers – the music industry is lobbying US Congress for tighter and more specific copyright laws for music. Currently, it is not obvious what, if any, the recording industry’s recommendations will have on software licensing. However, copyright laws form the foundation for software licensing so it is in the best interest of IT asset managers to keep a watchful eye on how this progresses. Perhaps while listening to your favorite music!
IAITAM will be watching!
