Types of digital content


In order to assess copyright issues in light of digital content it is important to properly identify and understand a variety of mediums. Once each form is identified and described the implications of copyright law and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act relating to academic use will be expounded upon. Digital content will be grouped into three fluid categories: the Internet, databases, and eBooks. While each medium is distinct, they are not mutually excluive and many works fall into more than one category. Having an understanding of the scope of works as well as the particular characteristics of each form will provide librarians with the ability to ably assist scholars in the digital milieu.
