This dissertation is a study of the debate over policies governing copyright management technologies, also known as Digital Rights Management, or DRM. It tackles the question of how DRM policy gets made using three methods: a content analysis of policy actors’ offline and online communication regarding copyright policy, a webgraph analysis of the issue space online, and an historical study of major policy debates. For recent debates, it compares offline forums, such as congressional hearings and print news, with the interlinked community of advocacy groups’ websites. The results show the online picture is markedly different from that presented offline.
