putting media collection materials online?

Posted by: Carrie
August 23, 2004 @ 1:54pm
I tend to think you are crossing the line. It sounds like the faculty want the DVDs available "just in case" they might need them. It's not really a teaching decision to use the work, it's a maybe.

If teachers want to use a video or... Read more...

Fair Use of cartoons

Posted by: Carrie
August 23, 2004 @ 1:44pm
From my perspective (not legal advice), I would evaluate your use by considering the four factors of fair use (section 107).

Factor one: purpose of the use.

It sounds like you are using the cartoons for educational... Read more...

UCITA states

Posted by: Carrie
August 18, 2004 @ 2:45pm
Yes, only Maryland and Virginia have passed UCITA. But that may not mean much because licenses crafted in other states could list Maryland and Virginia as the choice of forum for any litigation (unless of course, the state has "bomb shelter" legislation... Read more...

How valid is Circular 21?

Posted by: Carrie
August 18, 2004 @ 2:40pm
Circular 21 is "sort of" valid. Guidelines (that are included in Circular 21) are not the law as we know but many universities and schools use the guidelines to help them make fair use decisions. People like them because they are cut and dried. People... Read more...

Beth: I have split this off into a new topic. Please, if you are changing topics of conversation in a thread, start a new one by coming to the forum main menu and choosing 'new topic', and not through posting a reply. Thanks!

acquisition use of book cover images

August 18, 2004 @ 10:19am
Well, there's a couple different things going on here. Titles, typically, cannot be copyrighted. Book *covers*, however, can absolutely be (think especially of the covers of fiction books which may have original artwork, etc). I've asked a couple of... Read more...

August 17, 2004 @ 2:45pm
So, a few people have asked me about an RSS feed for the Network. There in fact is one, located at http://librarycopyright.net/modules.php?name=Forums&file=rss . It doesn't work so terribly well with the forum paradigm, but it is a useful tool to alert... Read more...

quoting from letters in an archival collection

August 15, 2004 @ 12:32pm
If you intend to quote beyond what would seem reasonable under fair use, then you should seek permission from the copyright holder, whether you are using the original letters or copies. The copyright holder to the original letters and to any copies of... Read more...

Turnitin.com

August 14, 2004 @ 6:59am
It can violate student copyright, and there are some privacy issues as well. Turnitin's licensing policy was somewhat problematic. (Their license is available online at their website under the legal section- look at copyright and archiving in particular.)... Read more...

For-profit educational institution

Posted by: Carrie
August 11, 2004 @ 2:47pm
The non-profit educational institution is really special status in the copyright law. Most of the exemptions in copyright law have the "non-profit" condition as a pre-requisite to exercising an exclusive right.

But fair use still exists... Read more...

Electronic ILL & Licenses

Posted by: TrishaDavis
August 11, 2004 @ 12:03pm
Hi Catherine -

You certainly cannot certify that the borrowing library will take the required actions, so the main issue is this: Does the license require you to take responsibility for the borrowing library's actions? I doubt it... Read more...

CCC and unclaimed ILL copies

August 10, 2004 @ 3:36pm
We currently have a policy of simply absorbing the total CCC cost for ILL articles that go over the "5 in 5" rule for a title.

We sometimes have patrons request articles that they then don't bother to pick up (or retrieve online if... Read more...

Institutional Repository Copyright Infringement Liability

August 9, 2004 @ 11:49am
I think that the copyright holder who makes the claim of infringement can sue whomever he chooses. My assumption is that the holder would want to be able to make a good argument. The holder would have to prove that the infringement occurred (which if I... Read more...

copying PDFs of state docs into catalog

Could you just provide a link from your catalog record to the original state govt site?

I would not assume that just because the state govt placed the documents on a freely accessible web site that they are not claiming copyright... Read more...

I'll take a stab at this but would be interested in what others think.

It's hard to know what the copyright holder had in mind when he said that
pages could be reproduced for classroom use. I read the message as indicating... Read more...

fair use of videos

Posted by: ross
August 2, 2004 @ 8:54am
I would take some issue with the suggestion that *no* 'remixing' be allowed... Using short segments of a video in a way that you believe would qualify as fair use sounds fine, in my (admittedly amateur and oftentimes not-so-conservative) opinion. You...
