Questions and Answers Regarding the Ad Hoc Committee's Position [on Copyright Law Revision].
The Ad Hoc Committee on Copyright Law Revision describes its position in a question and answer format. General questions about the committee and its objectives are followed by a description of the differing needs of copyright holders and educators. Since the committee's primary concern is that educators have adequate access to and use of copyrighted materials, the questions are centered around the fair use doctrine, a limited education exemption, copyright duration, waiver of statutory damages on innocent educational infringers, reproduction by libraries, use of broadcast materials, and use of educational technology, including computers. In each of these areas the existing and proposed laws are described and the committee's recommendations stated. The committee's position on a clearinghouse or statutory licensing system is given, and the requested limited educational exemption is described in detail. A proposed statute titled "Limitation on exclusive rights: Reproduction for teaching, scholarship, and research" is appended. (LS)
