In past decades the library concept has been evolving from a traditional, physical form to a digital counterpart without a fixed place but with a structural infrastructure for ordered access to content. The outmoded character of copyright law is one of the challenges currently confronting the library sector. Vicky Breemen puts the tension between copyright law and libraries in context against the background of such developments. One aim is to clarify and strengthen the legal position of libraries.
