An Argument for the Application of Copyright Law to Distance Education.
Lipinski, Tomas A.
American Journal of Distance Education, v13 n3 p7-21 1999
Presents a legal analysis of the application of copyright law to distance education environments, particularly as it applies to Web-based instruction and the construction of electronic reserves, or virtual libraries. Explores the dangers of moving toward a schema of universal or compulsory licensing of information. Suggests several possible components that new "fair use" guidelines might include.
