The Great Balancing Act.
Young, Peter R.
The issue of ownership of intellectual property is central to scholarly communication of expressed ideas. Our knowledge property arrangements are key to success in the competitive global markets of the 1990s. There is concern that recent social, technological, and economic changes in the scholarly communication system are affecting the balance between the creators and users of scholarship. This balance involves the "fair use" of copyrighted works for teaching, scholarship, and research activities. Different models for balancing the public good with incentives rewarding individual creativity include the development of an electronic network for scholarly communication; strengthening the role of intellectual property collectives; development of a public corporation to subsidize scholarly communications; and establishing new contractual rights agreements through intermediaries.
