Copyright Updates for K-12 Librarians
Johnson, Wendell G.
Knowledge Quest, v45 n2 p26-33 Nov-Dec 2016
Copyright concerns continue to bedevil K-12 librarians, who are often called upon to act as the copyright officers in public schools. This article describes recent copyright developments of concern to these librarians in three areas: a recent court case involving a university library, pending legislation supported by ALA, and a regulatory update. Many recent cases, laws, and regulations stem from issues raised by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) of 1998.
