* Note: This revised version of the paper posted on 5/7/2013 replaces an earlier reviewed version on which the STEP committee relied on when writing its report, Copyright in the Digital Era: Building Evidence for Policy. In this version of the paper, the Bureau of Economic Affairs decided to substitute the term "entertainment originals" for "artistic originals" and revised upward the depreciation rate on those assets. As a result, some of the figures in the paper do not precisely match those in the report.
