Posted in 4cast

From online resources to local story times, printed and online materials and copyright go hand in hand.  Is what you’re doing a violation?  What about your patrons?  Here are some copyright articles that may be of interest.

  • According to their website, “Copycense is an online publication that provides insight, commentary, and scholarship on copyright, licensing, intellectual property, and digital media.”  Check this site out if you’re interested in things like DMCA, public domain works, file sharing/P2P etc.

Cool fact:
The OPLIN Support Center receives approximately 25 copyright infringement notices a month, usually from movie studios indicating that someone has used a bit torrent client to download feature films.
