accessible to users with disabilities. The Mueller Report PDF does not 
conform with these regulations…"

By Jon Kantner. 
"…A WebAIM survey from 2018 reported that 12.5% of users who rely on

ditching CSS could be one way to consume content faster. There’s also 
the chance that CSS is disabled for reasons outside our immediate 
control, like when a server has hiccups of fails to load assets. As an 
experiment, I used five websites and a web app without CSS, and this 
post will cover my experiences…"

Digital Rights Management (DRM) Definition FROM Tech Target 

   

"Digital rights management (DRM) is a systematic approach

to copyright protection for digital media. The purpose of DRM

is to prevent unauthorized redistribution of digital media and

restrict the ways consumers can copy content they've

purchased. DRM products were developed in response to the

rapid increase in online piracy of commercially marketed material,

which proliferated through the widespread use of peer-to-peer

file exchange programs."

 

http://tinyurl.com/okpcpcb

   

*

 

DRM (Digital Rights Management) Definition FROM Tech Terms 

   

"DRM refers to a collection of systems used to protect the

copyrights of electronic media. These include digital music

and movies, as well as other data that is stored and transferred

digitally. For example, the Apple iTunes Music Store uses a DRM

system to limit the number of computers that songs can be

played on. Each audio file downloaded from the iTunes music

store includes information about the owner of the file and how

many times the file has been transferred. The protected files will

not play on computers that have not been authorized to play

the music."

 

http://techterms.com/definition/drm

   

*

 

Digital Rights Management FROM Wikipedia 

   

"Digital rights management (DRM) is a class of copy protection

technologies[1] that are used by hardware and software

manufacturers, publishers, copyright holders, and individuals with

the intent to control the use of digital content and devices after

sale;[1][2][3] there are, however, many competing definitions.

4] With first-generation DRM software, the intent is to control

copying; with second-generation DRM, the intent is to control

executing, viewing, copying, printing, and altering of works or

devices. The term is also sometimes referred to as copy protection,

copy prevention, and copy control, although the correctness of

doing so is disputed.[5] DRM is a set of access control technologies.

[6][7] In 1998, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) was

passed in the United States to impose criminal penalties on those

who make available technologies whose primary purpose and

function are to circumvent content protection technologies.[8]

 

The use of digital rights management is not universally accepted.

Some content providers claim that DRM is necessary to fight

copyright infringement and that it can help the copyright holder

maintain artistic control[9] or ensure continued revenue streams.

[10] Proponents argue that digital locks should be considered

necessary to prevent "intellectual property" from being copied

freely, just as physical locks are needed to prevent personal property

from being stolen.[11] Those opposed to DRM contend there is no

evidence that DRM helps prevent copyright infringement, arguing

instead that it serves only to inconvenience legitimate customers,

and that DRM helps big business stifle innovation and competition.

[12] Furthermore, works can become permanently inaccessible if

the DRM scheme changes or if the service is discontinued.[13]

 

Digital locks placed in accordance with DRM policies can also

restrict users from exercising their legal rights under copyright law,

such as backing up copies of CDs or DVDs, lending materials out

through a library, accessing works in the public domain, or using

copyrighted materials for research and education under the US fair

use laws,[11] and under French law.[14] The Electronic Frontier

Foundation (EFF) and the Free Software Foundation (FSF) consider

the use of DRM systems to be anti-competitive practice.[15][16]"

    DIGITAL RIGHTS MANAGEMENT:

    THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND THE HYPE

    ABSTRACT

 

"A specific digital rights management (DRM) system designed

for digital document protection is presented in some detail.

Following some background information on document

protection, the various technical measures employed by this

DRM system are discussed. These technical measures include

a variety of tamper resistance methods, controlled execution

techniques, encryption, digital watermarking and other

techniques. The discussion of specific security features is

followed by a discussion of several other current and

developing DRM systems and technologies. Comments and

conjectures on the limitations and future directions of the

technology are made throughout."

Digital Rights Management (DRM) and Libraries

 

FROM The American Library Association 

 

    DRM: A Brief Introduction

   

    Key concerns for libraries

    Eliminating the “First sale” doctrine

 

    Enforcing a “Pay-per-use” model of information dissemination

 

    Enforcing time limits or other limitations of use

    that prevent preservation and archiving.

 

    Eliminating “fair use” and other exceptions in Copyright Law

    that underpin education, criticism, and scholarship.

Elsevier Complaint Shuts Down SCI-HUB Domain Name

Hoping to stop the unauthorized distribution of millions of academic papers, 
academic publisher Elsevier filed a complaint against Sci-Hub and several 
related sites last year.

.

While Sci-Hub is nothing like the average pirate site, it is just as illegal 
according to Elseviers legal team, which obtained a preliminary injunction 
from a New York District Court last fall.

.

The injunction ordered Sci-Hubs operator to quit offering access to any 
Elsevier content, but this didnt happen. Instead of taking Sci-Hub down, 
the lawsuit and the associated media attention only helped the site grow.

.

However, as part of the injunction Elsevier is able to request domain name 
registrars to suspend Sci-Hubs domain names. This happened to the original .org 
domain earlier, and a few days ago the Chinese registrar Now.cn appears to 
have done the same for Sci-hub.io.

.

The domain name has stopped resolving and is now listed as reserved according 
to the latest WHOIS info. TorrentFreak reached out to Sci-Hub founder Alexandra 
Elbakyan, who informed us that the registrar sent her a notice referring to a complaint 
from Elsevier.

.

Elbakyan was also quick to add that several backup domain names are still in play, 
including Sci-Hub.bz and Sci-Hub.cc. This means that the site remains accessible 
to those who update their bookmarks.

Sci-Hub

From Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sci-Hub

.

Sci-Hub is an online repository of over 51,000,000[1] scientific academic papers and 
articles,[2] available through its website. New papers are uploaded daily after 
accessing them through .edu proxies.[3] Founded by Alexandra Elbakyan from 
Kazakhstan in 2011, it began as a reaction to the high cost of research papers behind 
paywalls, typically US$30 each when bought on a per-paper basis.[4] Academic 
publisher Elsevier has in 2015 filed a legal complaint in New York City alleging copyright 
infringement by Sci-Hub.[5]

Sci-Hub is providing science publishers with their Napster moment

A report from Science shows that academic paper piracy site Sci-Hub is not a niche product 
catering to cheapskates and isolated mad scientists: Its as popular as it is illegal, and its 
millions of users span the globe, from Tehran to Boston.

.

For those not aware, Sci-Hub is, in the X for Y startup lingo of our days, The Pirate Bay for 
research. Millions of papers, many of which require a fee or institutional subscription of some 
kind to access, have been downloaded in full and added to the Sci-Hub database. You can get 
just about any paper you want with a few keystrokes  and, naturally, publishers are furious.

.

Alexandra Elbakyan, the young Kazakh grad student who founded Sci-Hub in 2011, provided 
Science reporter John Bohannon with six months of usage data  which, incidentally, the journal 
is kindly providing for anyone to download themselves.

.

The stats, which have been scrubbed of personally identifying information, are impressive: 
There are more than 50 million papers stored, with between 4 and 6 million downloaded a month. 
There are users on every continent but Antarctica

Piracy site for academic journals playing game of domain-name Whac-A-Mole
Just like The Pirate Bay, Sci-Hub is domain hopping to beat takedown court orders.

We reported a few weeks ago on a popular pirate site for science journals whose oversees admin 
was being sued by one of the world’s leading academic publishers, Elsevier. Elsevier is the same 
New York publisher that the late Aaron Swartz had noted in his “Guerilla Open Access Manifesto” 
that told academics and researchers they had a “duty” to free the knowledge they were privileged 
to read behind Elsevier’s paywall.

.

Because of the lawsuit, which Sci-Hub founder Alexandra Elbakyan has refused to participate in, 
she’s been engaged in a game of domain-name Whac-A-Mole in response to Elsevier winning 
court orders demanding the shuttering of the popular site’s domain name. The site allows anybody, 
not just academics, to access tens of millions of scholastic research articles for free.
