In this digital age, the need for authors and publishers to protect the ownership rights of their works is more challenging and complex. Numerous DRM techniques have been developed to safeguard these rights. Yet DRM methods restrict what individuals can do with the electronic content and often endanger the information integrity of the library and the privacy of its constituents. Speakers discuss the issues and concerns around DRM and its impact on information integrity, including the methodology and future of DRM, the privacy rights of the individual, especially students and faculty, using Creative Commons licenses, and the issues of copyright.
