Digital rights management and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act

Abstract:

What is copyright law in relation to digital content? How do content provider rights holders safeguard their property through technological protection measures. The DMCA is primarily concerned with legally prohibiting circumvention and stopping the trafficking of circumvention-enabling technologies. The ways that this effects libraries in loaning material are discussed. The means of access control relating to different platforms are explained and the impetus for the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 is discussed. The major influences behind this act are addressed and the rulemaking process is elaborated on.
