MS. PETERS: Good morning. We're going
to start our second day of hearings here at Stanford
University Law School. Yesterday I made an opening
statement. I will not repeat it. It is outside for
those who are not aware of it.
This morning we have several witnesses
from the Business Software Alliance. We have Paul
Hughes of Adobe Systems, Incorporated, and then we
have Emery Simon representing DSA.
We were supposed to have Steve Metalitz
representing a wide range of copyright owners. He
is stuck in Chicago because of bad weather. He may
be getting on a plane and may be able to join us
this afternoon, but we're not sure about that. And
that may cause adjustment of the starting time this
afternoon. We'll know by the end of this morning
what we'll be doing. Also with us is Frederick
Weingarten, representing the American Library
So we will start with Business Software
Alliance, and between the two of you, you decide
who's going first. Paul? Okay.
