The paper provides a strong economic rationale for legal protection from
piracy for databases produced by private entities. The authors argue
that this protection is necessary to ensure the continued availability
of the information services upon which Americans rely in both their
public and private lives. They describe how an appropriately crafted
law can meet the challenge of protecting the enormous human and
financial investments of database producers, while at the same time
ensuring that information is available to support education, scientific
progress and economic growth.
