summary One of the issues that this conference explores is the continuing phenomenon of convergence of communication, caused in part by the convergence of media and digital content. In this paper, we will review some of the intellectual property challenges that loom in this environment, with an emphasis on the situation in the Unites States. We shall discuss some of the peculiar features inherent in digital content that exacerbate the intellectual property problem, such as non-permanence, multiple, heterogeneous. We shall examine a couple of cases that illustrate some of the problems in this area. We shall then conclude with the problem of intellectual property and the multiple goals of digital content collections.
