Adobe, The New York Times Company and Twitter Announce Content Authenticity Initiative to Develop Industry Standard for Content Attribution

This is an unusual piece for me to link to, and has no specific data science content in it. It's a short press release by Adobe, the NYT, and Twitter essentially declaring that they were teaming up to solve content attribution on the internet. I can imagine a bunch of ways to attempt this, plenty of them data-science-driven, all of them fragile. It reeks of DRM to me: a mechanism of attempting to control digital content that is fundamentally uncontrollable.

It's worth a read. Short, concise.
