Digital Disruption Part 2: How well do we understand licensing? (A podcast)

Although the responses are still undergoing analysis, Manon Gray's master's thesis contains a survey to probe the understanding of licensing terms between media librarians and distributors. She and Professor Howard Besser (both at NYU) talk about how they put it together, and what they hope to learn and contribute to the academy knowledge base.
