"Bit Rot" – A Disaster Waiting to Happen

Dr. Cerf will discuss the problem of curating digital content on the order of centuries. Unicode has a role to play although there are very complex issues relating to format and structure of digital objects, interpretation of content, intellectual property management, perhaps even patents and other legal framework questions. The problems are both technical and legal.
