This paper discusses copyright issues, focusing on changes due to digital technology. Highlights include: problems for copyright posed by digital technologies, i.e., the identification of copyright works and owners, and the enforcement of copyright rights; electronic monitoring of copyright uses to provide rights owners with data on usage; the need for copyright owners to be able to enforce their rights if they are to participate in the trading of rights on the Internet; issues raised by the use of technological measures and legislative amendments to protect digital work from unauthorized use; new systems for enforcing copyright on the Internet; the politics of the copyright debate; the relationship between collecting societies and libraries; and the possibility of a partnership rather than an adversarial relationship between advocates for access and protection.
