    Considers two limits on freedom of expression in electronic
    media: the regulation of the Internet and electronic
    copyright. Examines these in two case studies, one on the
    status of anarchist publishing on the Internet, the other on
    the use of sampling in the creation of new recordings.
    Notes that these limits have been applied most effectively
    to small, alternative creators and publishers and result
    from narrow views of electronic media. Recommends that
    librarians address the use of electronic media in the light of
    freedom of expression, rather than in commercial and legal terms.
