Abstract:

Saving bits is not enough. The meaning of the bits must also be preserved along with any meta-data needed for that interpretation. Software that created the bits, interprets and renders the bits and perhaps the operating system needed to run the application and a description of the computer needed to run the software may all need to be preserved. There are intellectual property issues also to be dealt with as companies come and go, software ownership changes, and so on. This is a complex problem especially when the target is preservation for millennia.
