Sample Content

Much has changed (and much hasn't) since the first editioncame out in 2004. The transition from print to digitalcontinues in periodical collections and academic reservesand repositories. The Copyright Act has changed a little butnot for the better. What also hasn't changed is the factthat the publishing industry's views begin with the premisethat if you want to use something, you have to pay for it.This book is another voice of copyright, beginning with adifferent premise: copyright exists to promote thedissemination of information, and while creators havecertain rights, so do users. This new edition updates everychapter from the first edition and adds a new chapter on thelibrary as a publisher. Also included is information onrecent developments such as Creative Common licenses and theuse of digital video (e.g. YouTube) in the classroom.
