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.

The thirty-sixth Internationalization and Unicode Conference (IUC) will
take place in Santa Clara, Calif., USA at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on
October 22-24, 2012, sponsored by Adobe. This is the premier conference
