Report on copyright barriers to education

The Berkman Center have published a new Foundational White Paper on The Digital Learning Challenge: Obstacles to Educational Uses of Copyrighted Material in the Digital Age. Well worth a read. Those folks in the open learning community who have have recently picked up on the possible hurdles the law might create in our domain, as a result of the Blackboard litigation, might find the report particularly interesting. If you only have time for one of the case studies I'd recmomend the one focussing on DRM technology.
