The Digital Carrot, the Digital Stick
Jackson, Gregory A.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v54 n14 pB20 Nov 2007
In this article, the author asserts that technology is not the answer to digital piracy at colleges and universities. Citing the three most common explanations given for copyright infringement--that students cannot always get what they want, cannot always use what they can get, or think the price of what they can get is unfair--he asserts that the best solution for the current problem is to address these objections to current practices rather than attempting to use technology to win the fight.
