The Six Basic Needs of Education vs. Public Law 94-533 Copyright Act of 1976.
Flint, Carl; Peters, Marybeth
Developed as a service for the Health Sciences Academic Community, this 5-part monograph explores the impact of the new copyright law PL 94-553 on the basic needs of education. Part one, in the form of an illustrated lecture, enumerates six basic needs of education--the right to make copies, the doctrine of fair use, permission to duplicate copyrighted material, protection against infringement, future instructional requirements, and ready access to materials--and discusses their relationships to the provisions of PL 94-553. Part two provides an in-depth response to the concerns of the educational community and defends the provisions of the new law in their application to these basic needs. Ten fictional case histories are recounted in part three to provide a basis for discussion of possible and probable problems, and conclusions are presented in part four. The monograph concludes with six general references on legislative enactment of the new law and its educational aspects. (RAA)
