A Digital Public Library of America? Collective Management's Implications for Privacy, Private Use and Fair Use

Palfrey, John

The purpose of this essay is to examine collective licensing operations, with particular emphasis on some of the consequences for privacy, private use and fair use. I examine these issues in the context of a specific idea that might draw, at least in part, on a collective management approach: an emergent proposal to create a Digital Public Library of America ("DPLA"), which I think is an important undertaking.
