Description

Intellectual Property and the Work of Information Professionals introduces readers to a 'big picture' account of the dynamics associated with the establishment of the new information and knowledge-based economy. The author demonstrates that at the core of these dynamics is the contentious issue of the corporate ownership of intellectual property and the impact that the ownership is having, and is increasingly likely to have, not only on the work of information professionals in particular and knowledge workers in general but also on the public at large.
