    Mr. Berbinau will describe how the ARMT is structured and functions, and how it achieves its mission of finding the right balance between the protection of DRMs and ensuring that French consumers benefit from the "private copy" and interoperability rules provided by law.   Mr. Berbinau will also clarify the rules regarding the filing of source codes for certain kinds of access control technologies.   This will be a valuable opportunity to chat with a key official in this new regulatory authority, and learn the practical impact of the interoperability and private copy principles in the DADVSI (French copyright law) that have attracted so much international attention.
    In addition to his responsibilities as Secrétaire Général of the ARMT, Mr. Berbinau is a member of the Conseil Général des Technologies de l'Information (CGTI) and of the Conseil Supérieur de la Propriété Littéraire et Artistique (CSPLA).    He is an engineer ("X-Telecom") by training, having graduated from l'Ecole Polytechnique and  ENST Paris.
