How can copyright be protected in the digital world? (Or, how can we handle digital rights management – an answer to the first question)
This is the same question I used for the EricFirst and Worldcat search.

Another term I have learned about from my last search assignment is Digital Rights Management (DRM) that could work as well.

Search results came up empty.
Library Lit Boolgan smart search: digital rights AND management AND protect
The results were 29 records. Several looked promising too. One of the records I chose was "Publishers, Audible Watching eMusic Moves" by Jim Milliot as it deals with DRM and providing unencrypted file to buyers.
Milliot, J. (2007). Publishers, Audible Watching eMusic Moves. Publishers Weekly , 4.
Another article I found was "Ethical Issues Implicit in Library Authentication and Access Management: Risks and Best Practices" by Pam Dixon (2008). This one is about how libraries are involved with DRM.
Dixon, P. (2008). "Ethical Issues Implicit in Library Authentication and Access Management: Risks and Best Practices". Journal of Library Administration , 141-62.
I did complete another search that dealt with how school libraries could inform students about digital copyrights and found an interesting article titled "Front & Center: the Role of Libraries and Copyright in the Digital Age" by G.M. O'Gara (2008).

Books in Print Boolgan subject search: electronic AND copyright
158 records were found. This is better than the first search, but there are lots of records to go through. Several of the books did seem interesting though. Digital Copyright by Simon Stokes and Intellectual Property Law and Interactive Media: Free for a Fee by Edward Lee Lamoureux both seem to be good for a basic understanding of what copyright and the Internet is.

ETA: In Books in Print, I used the advnaced search selection and chose "subject - all" as my search on option. However, I did go back and try the "Keyword in Subject" and came up with the same results.
I found the Library Lit database to be easier to work with and easier to find information pertaining to my needs. At first I had some problems finding much of anything, but after reading the "Help" I was able to ease through it. Another I noticed was that I found more (maybe even better) information with this database by using the "smart search" option.
As for the Books in Print, I really had trouble getting into this one. Part of my problem may have been that I was looking for articles and not books. However, this database tends to focus on books (as the name of it suggests). I did find some good books, but I had to try several different searches. (I only listed a few of them here.) It was interesting the number of search options one has under "Binding" from the advance search menu.
