Sharman Networks has called former Napster expert witness Justin Tygar to give his testimony during the ongoing trial against the parent company of Kazaa for alleged copyright infringement.Published: December 10, 2004, 4:15 PM PST By Kristyn Maslog-Levis Special to CNET News.com Tygar, a University of Berkeley professor of computer science and information management, told Judge Murray Wilcox that technology is the answer to keeping users from infringing on copyrights. "There's extremely rapid progress being made in this area," he said. "For example, Windows now offers WMA format files that have something called Digital Rights Management. The digital rights management system makes it very difficult for users to exchange those files. "Watermarking technology that's been developed can help assist in catching cases where infringement happens. I believe that the problem of copyright infringement is so pervasive in our society that legal mechanisms alone can never address this." Wilcox admitted he had no idea as to the extent of use of the peer-to-peer technology for infringing copyrights
