Managing Digital Rights: A Practitioner's Guide

Managing Digital Rights: A Practitioner's Guide (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Information professionals are becoming increasingly reliant on content in digital form such as databases, news feeds, e-books, electronic reference materials or e-journals; or they may wish to digitize content that they hold in hard copy format. Rather than relying exclusively on copyright law to protect their content, rights owners make use of licences or contractual agreements - and also technology in the shape of digital rights management (DRM) and electronic rights management information systems - to protect and enforce their rights over digital assets. DRM technology is used to control access to digital content and the uses made of it, to obtain payment for it, and to ensure the integrity of the work. The Copyright Directive implemented in the UK through the Copyright and Related Rights Regulations 2003 gave legal protection to rights holders using such systems. This book is a practical guide to the use of digital content. It deals with the question of how electronic information can be used legitimately, and suggests practical ways in which copyright clearance can be obtained whilst keeping the administration to a manageable level.

This book is essential for all practitioners working in library and information centres, archives and museums needing to know how to go about digitizing their collections and to understand the complexities of DRM. It is also of great value to publishers managing contracts, assignments and licences, and to students of information and media studies.
