DVD deterioration.

CDs and DVBs give businesses a space-saving way to archive data and an easy way to retrieve it. But what standards must these media storage formats meet? The Government Information Preservation Working Group, made up of experts from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the DVD Association, is devising requirements for archival-quality CD and DVB media and making specifications for meeting these requirements. NIST is also developing a test for media manufacturers to determine whether their products meet these criteria.
