Much has changed (and much hasn't) since the first edition came out in 2004. The transition from print to digital continues in periodical collections and academic reserves and repositories. The Copyright Act has changed a little but not for the better. What also hasn't changed is the fact that the publishing industry's views begin with the premise that if you want to use something, you have to pay for it. This book is another voice of copyright, beginning with a different premise: copyright exists to promote the dissemination of information, and while creators have certain rights, so do users. This new edition updates every chapter from the first edition and adds a new chapter on the library as a publisher. Also included is information on recent developments such as Creative Common licenses and the use of digital video (e.g. YouTube) in the classroom.
