portal: Libraries and the Academy, v3 n2 p191-206 Apr 2003
Suggests that varied and often understated uses of copyrighted materials exist in academic settings. Introduces four "frames" of reference: Academic, Technological, Social, and Market. Presents court cases relevant to each frame. Explores two scenarios involving use of copyrighted materials. As technology increases both access and control, the tradition of fair use in higher education must be preserved and differentiated from other commercial uses. (Author/AEF)
