Local library manages circulation Limited access period Some return mechanism E-Book Distribution OECD, E-Books: Development and Policy Considerations (2011) Copyright Balances two public interests Incentivizing production of new information Through owners interest in monetizing assets Fostering use of information
First sale doctrine Fair use doctrine First Sale Doctrine Owner may transfer access of the owned copy But may not make a copy then transfer the copy This is what permits lending libraries Exception: no commercial lending of audio recordings Licensing can apply more restrictive rules Establishes a conditional right of access This is what permits limited- Fair Use Doctrine
Balance two desirable characteristics Financial incentives to produce content Desirable uses of existing information Safe harbor agreement Book chapter, magazine article, picture, Developed in an era of physical documents Perfect copies/instant delivery alter the balance Recent Copyright Laws Copyright Term Extension Act (CTEA) Ruled constitutional (Jan 2003, Supreme Court)
Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Prohibits circumvention of technical measures Implements WIPO treaty database protection Digital Rights Management (DRM) Goal: protect intellectual property rights Copyright relies on cost and quality of analog copies Three interlocking strategies Make it difficult to produce an exact digital copy Encrypt the content and then control description Enforce policies to rebalance costs and benefits Digital Rights Management
