Recently, the Recording Industry Association of America informed Syracuse University about potential copyright infringement stemming from the exchange of digital music files. File sharing is one of the flashpoints involving copyright and students. The other is electronic reserves. The issues involved in e-reserves are sure to grow more complex and contentious as the combination of digital technologies and human innovation stretch already outdated notions of access, use, and protection beyond limits any legislator reasonably could have imagined. At some point, consumers, creators, companies, and repositories must find a way to manage use of and access to digital works in a manner in which everyone gets some substantive benefit, if not the benefit to which they have become accustomed.
