Digital Rights Management: A Primer for Librarians

Michael Godwin has written an excellent overview of digital rights management for ALA's Office for Information Technology Policy. If you aren't sure what DRM is or want to know what the issues are, this is a great beginning. Godwin begins by laying the groundwork for copyright law, printing, and copying. From there, he discusses the DRM technology and its issues. [from LibrarianInBlack]
