Intended for those members of the higher education community who write and publish (and that includes both students who write research papers, faculty who produce scholarly articles, copy centers, and college stores), this easy-to-understand guide explains the requirements of United States copyright law. The guide, in question and answer format, presents an overview of relevant sections of the amended Copyright Act of 1976. The goal of the guide is to clarify the issues and provide information and procedures that will result in greater understanding of the rules governing copyrighted works and facilitate the processing of photocopy requests. The guide includes discussions of ownership of copyright, penalties for copyright infringement, "fair use,""the Kinko's case," and permission requests and procedures for obtaining permission to copy. Appendix A contains the agreement on guidelines for classroom copying of books and periodicals in educational institutions. Appendix B contains a sample copyright permissions form. (NKA)
