Intellectual Property Development and Use for Distance Education Courses: A Review of Law, Organizations, and Resources for Faculty
Nemire, Ruth E.
College Teaching, v55 n1 p26-30 Win 2007
Advancement of knowledge and progress in technology drives the need for protecting inventions, new ideas, writings, music, and other media. While abundant, intellectual property and copyright issues are not simple, and the United States has adopted multiple rules via treaties worldwide. Academia has been fortunate with regard to the freedom provided by the fair use doctrine. Despite the freedoms, however, some feel that liberty is now limited by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (DMCA) and other rules being placed on intellectual property use (Carlson 2004). (Contains 4 tables and 9 notes.)
