Electronic publishing and multimedia rights

Chapter 23 has provided coverage of some aspects of electronic publishing, as there is increasing pressure from users, particularly in the academic and commercial research sectors, for fast and easy access to selected copyright material electronically rather than through the medium of photocopying. This chapter is devoted to full-scale electronic publishing and multimedia licensing, although there is inevitably some area of overlap with certain aspects covered in Chapter 23, in particular that of electronic libraries and digital aggregators.
