About this book

Digital copyright is still a developing area, and is a potential minefield for information professionals. In the UK there is no Act of Parliament specifically addressing copyright for materials in digital form. Rather the profession is reliant on the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, and how this relates to machine-readable content. This book examines in depth how digital content is treated differently from hard-copy material. The second edition includes a new chapter that takes an in-depth look at digital rights management (DRM). It takes account of the All Party Internet Group's findings of their public inquiry into DRM, published in June 2006; and the Gowers Review of Intellectual Property of December 2006. It also offers a new section on copyright clearance for digital content; current examples of the penalties imposed for file sharing, piracy and counterfeiting; and additional case law examples.
