Re: [802SEC] DVD versus Memory Sticks

Hello all,
   I believe that the behavior of the recipient will be fairly close to the same whether it is DVD or Memory Stick.
I believe that most will take the media, and copy the specific standards that they want easy access, and put it on their specific drive/location. 

I realize what the license agreement on the front matter says...I am merely commenting on what I believe is the behavior of most folks.

As was noted, most laptops do not have DVD drives anymore, and we also note that some Companies have issues with memory sticks...those same companies probably have some prohibition on data from DVDs as well.

If we look at the cost vs the convenience, I think we should stick with the DVD for another year (pun intended).
While folks don't may not have a DVD on their laptops, they will have access at their respective offices.

Dear WG Chairs,

On the heels of the discussion of DVD versus Memory sticks at the July Closing Plenary – I had some individuals approach me and highlight that they are aware of a number of companies that have issues with memory sticks – and may actually take the contents of the memory sticks and then copy to a drive on the network.


I am requesting that you try and get some input for me on the topic of memory sticks from participants in your WG and have the individuals email me if they have issues with memory sticks.


I need to get this information quickly in order to begin the task of preparations for the 2016 electronic media distribution, so a prompt response will be greatly appreciated.
