Karger, Joanne – National Center on Accessible Educational Materials, 2014
This brief provides an overview of the "fair use" doctrine under copyright law. To date, there have been very few court cases in either the K-12 or higher education context that address the applicability of this doctrine to the conversion of print instructional materials into accessible formats.

Wiggins, Michael R. – Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, 2011
University administrators who have distance learning programs under their charge are on the horns of a dilemma. Given the growing litigiousness of copyright holders and the unsettled state of the law, it has become very difficult to establish failsafe administrative rules to guide faculty and student use of copyrighted materials. But the use of…

Liston, Samuel – Computers in Libraries, 2010
The first sale doctrine says that after a copyright holder first sells a copy of his or her work, the new owner may do whatever he or she pleases with that copy (assuming that use is legal). This concept came up through common law and was eventually codified in the Copyright Act of 1976. In 2010, two cases were working their way through the U.S.…

Grogg, Jill E. – Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, 2008
Librarians engage in some sort of negotiation all the time. Unfortunately, library schools do not uniformly teach negotiation theory or skills. New librarians are left to their own devices to self-educate, and self-educate they must. Most of the library-specific negotiation literature and continuing education opportunities focus almost entirely on…

Blackwell, Cindy; Jones, David – Journal of Leadership Education, 2008
For many educators the fair use provision of the Copyright Act of 1976 and the subsequent Technology, Education, and Copyright Harmonization (TEACH) Act offer "carte blanche" use of various forms of media in the classroom. As Siva Vaidhyanathan (2001) notes, "Copyright myths have had as much power as copyright laws" (p. 5). The…

Lee, Leslie A.; Wu, Michelle M. – Acquisitions Librarian, 2007
The purpose of traditional copyright law was to encourage the creation of works based on and to ensure reasonable access to original thought. Despite this harmonious intent, an intrinsic tension exists between libraries and copyright holders, as the former promotes "free" access to information that ultimately reduces the income of the…

Adams, Helen R. – School Library Media Activities Monthly, 2006
Today, federal laws often seem like an alphabet soup with acronyms like CIPA (Children's Internet Protection Act), CTEA (Copyright Term Extension Act), ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act), YMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act), and NC LB (No Child Left Behind). These letters stand for federal…

Clukey, Tim – Music Educators Journal, 2006
Public performances highlight months of work, but because most school groups cannot afford to hire professional recording engineers, these events are rarely suitably preserved.
