<mailto:emin@allegro.mit.edu>Anonymous Reader writes "The Institute
for Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) now forbids paper
submissions which violate the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)
via its new copyright form available at
www.ieee.org/about/documentation/copyright/NewCRfo rm101901.pdf. The
copyright form, which all authors must sign as a condition of
publication, requires the signer to warrant that the "publication or
dissemination of the Work shall not violate any proprietary right or
the Digital Copyright Millennium Act" [sic]. According to their web
site at www.ieee.org, the IEEE is a non-profit, technical professional
association of more than 377,000 individual members in 150 countries.
The IEEE produces 30 percent of the world's published literature in
electrical engineering, computers and control technology, holds
annually more than 300 major conferences and has more than 860 active
standards with 700 under development. Hence, the IEEE's decision to
require authors to adhere to the DMCA has the potential to restrict
research and discussion of security matters worldwide due to the 1998
U.S. law."

I was invited to write an article for IEEE Spectrum on the
export bill. I did so, but they insisted on editorial
changes that I found unacceptable. For example, they wanted
to insert a sentence crediting IBM with opposition to
export controls, when as we all know IBM was thoroughly in
the NSA corner.

IEEE first delayed the article to May, and then pulled it. I
have put it up on my web site instead:
