Technology and Copyright Law: A Guidebook for the Library, Research, and Teaching Professions : Includes 1999 Supplement
Neal-Schuman Publishers, Jan 1, 1997 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 213 pages
When is it legal to copy software for library or classroom use? Can reference or source materials be reproduced on the Internet to make them more widely available? What are the copyright rules for scanning documents into a computer? This groundbreaking guide -- designed and written for non-lawyers -- will help librarians, researchers, and school and college educators anticipate, avoid, and respond appropriately to legal difficulties stemming from electronic copyright. Part I covers historical and legal background, and also looks at trends for the future. Part II explores technology and copyright in libraries and classrooms, focusing on fair use doctrine, broadcasting, duplication and distribution, first sale doctrine, and contractual agreements. Part III discusses copyright law and the electronic classroom, networks, and international agreements. Includes checklists, model policies and remedies, copyright guidelines from the American Library Association and the Committee on New Technological and Uses. An addendum covers new copyright legislation, interpretations, and guidelines including the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
