He was the first president to have available iPad at the G-8 summit in Doville in summer and atthe G-20 summmit in Cannes last week, which his counterparts were quick to take note of.
Neither did Medvedev limit himself to demonstrating the possibilities of scientific and technological achievements but also told the Heads of State and Government about the need to take a novel approach to Internet copyright.
'It is impossible to protect only the rights of rightowners or only those of Internet users. It is essential to take a new approach that would secure rightowners' incomes and users' access (to Internet products," the President pointed out. ln so doing he said, "The scope of the use of Internet products must be determined by the products' rightowners".
