Electronics Guru Takes Stand

The dean of the consumer electronics sector, Gary Shapiro, used his opening keynote at the Consumer Electronics Show here on Monday to promote "fair use" of copyrighted content for technology users and the Digital Freedom campaign that he helped launch last year.

When "convergence" emerged as a buzzword 10 years ago, he said, "we debated whether it was TV or the PC that would dominate. Today that battle is totally over" and the focus is on the promise of nanotechnology, biometrics, robotics and other inventions.
