Dear all,

Apologies for sending a cfp to this list, but I feel that the topic of
digital rights management is very relevant for the JURIX conference
series, traditionally an AI and Law community. See the call for papers

You are most cordially invited to submit original work or participate
in the conference.

Best regards,

Rinke Hoekstra (chair)
