The Internet offers unprecedented opportunities for people to communicate and access to information. Libraries are embracing the new digital medium as it allows massive data storage, faster and more effective data retrieval, and easier content navigation and transfer. This communication revolution helps libraries fulfill their important mission in the society as the information repository and disseminator. The legal landscape of the digital environment, however, is very different from that of the traditional print environment due to the nature of the digital technology. This research explores the shift of legal paradigm and its implications upon the digital library development, and also suggests viable solutions to cope with the trend.
