This chapter introduces and explains the outlines of a new framework for dealing with the problem of copyright protection in the digital age. It sketches a model for a copyright system that is designed for the digital information environment while introducing the concept of the access-right that would replace existing exclusive rights when applied to digital works. Under the proposed regulative framework, digital access to works would become the axis around which both exclusivity entitlements and exceptions are tailored.
