As in the non-virtual word a ‘Library Card Holder’ receives permission to use the assets stored in the library for specific purposes and under certain conditions. These permissions and conditions are spelled out in a license agreement the Publisher signs with the IP Contributor. This licensing agreement process is facilitated digitally through the DBL.

 

An LCH is therefore primarily a recipient of the assets stored in the DBL.
