Contents Notes
General principles -- Restrictions on the use of copyrighted materials -- Liability for infringement -- Fair use (Section 107) -- The library exemption (Section 108) -- Digital information and software -- Licensing -- Audiovisual works and non-print media -- The library as publisher -- Conclusion -- Appendices (resources, texts, guidelines, samples, model policies). The transition from print to digital continues. The Copyright Act has changed a little, but not for the better. This book begins with the premise that copyright exists to promote the dissemination of information, and while creators have certain rights, so do users. This new edition updates every chapter and adds a new chapter on the library as a publisher. Also included is information on recent developments such as Creative Common licenses and the use of digital video (e.g. YouTube) in the classroom.
