ALA Tip Sheet on DRM

tip sheet logo

The American Library Association just released a very slick and clear tip sheet about Digital Rights Management.  The tip sheet comes from the DCWG (this is like an alphabet game, isn’t it!) the Digital Content and Libraries Working Group. 

The tip sheet defines DRM and speaks to the legal ramifications.  It also addresses concerns about user rights and the longevity of DRM law.  Finally, it encourages librarians to stay abreast of the changing DRM world and use talking points to help advocate for user rights.  Finally, there are links to help librarians keep up with the changing news.

This is a very effective, concise and manageable tip sheet that I can see many librarians finding useful as DRM continues to complicate library worlds.
