OA and DRM

Frederick J. Friend, Who protects the unprotected? INDICARE, October 10, 2004. Abstract: "Increasingly copies of journal articles and other academic content are made freely-available on the Web under an open access publication model. The benefits to readers, to authors and to society from toll-free access to research publications are being realised. Protection measures are still required to prevent abuse of authors' rights through plagiarism or unauthorised changes to the content, even though such abuse may only occur infrequently."
