At last, a really big player, the British Library, is throwing its weight behind a call for review of DRM, and a rethink about copyrights, especially with respect to orphaned work. I know British Library has its reservation about DRM for a long time now. This is the first time it goes public with a bang, rather than doing behind-the-scene work in that direction. Hurray!

And in case pro-DRM people think most of the antiDRM people are modern version of one-eye man/woman with a hook and bad teeth working under a black flag featuring a skull and two cross bone, read David Berlind’s answer to Engadget’s editorial on this issue. I have no symphathy for antiDRM people who fit that particular description. I need and use Intellectual Property Law to protect my work, but DRM gone one step too far….
