Pushback on copyright, DRM

I’m posting these because I haven’t seen reference to them in the “usual places.” Sorry if I’ve missed something — the post ALA landing was particularly hard, and I’m off to North Carolina on Thursday, so I’m scrambling.

The British Library and the Libraries and Archives Copyright Alliance express concern over limits placed by DRM in this article on the BBC News website (found on BoingBoing).

John Battelle’s Searchblog provides access to a talk given by University of Michigan’s president Mary Sue Coleman. [addition — since I started writing this yesterday, there’s been a great post on Search Engine Watch which I found via ResourceShelf. Thanks, Gary!]

I’m interested to see these issues raised and discussed, and I’m looking forward to discussions within the Open Content Alliance, which will hopefully push the envelope, although maybe from different corners.

    Thanks for this! I’ll have to add Library Link of the Day to my subscriptions!
