Nitumika Gogoi

Digital technologies has ushered in new modes of exploitation of copyrighted works brought in challenge to the copyright regime which demands its periodical modification to ensure adequate returns to the authors as well as access to these works by the public without restrictions. In this context, Librarians, more appropriately, the Information Professionals serve as societys major advocate of the public good in assuring equitable access to information for all sectors of the population. Libraries and information centres comprise an important market and serve as cardinal points of information access of multifaceted sources. The present paper is thus framed to look at some of the consequences resulting due to the collision of digital copyright and the Digital Rights Management (DRM) system. It is strived to provide justification to reach calibration between punitive nature of copyright laws and the rampant ability of the DRM system to lock down digital content that are having a potential impact on libraries, the bitter truth being that none of these two legal codes can be expurgated from the digital content battle-field to the upstarts.
