Copyright and Fair Use
Stanford University Libraries, FindLaw, and the Council on Library
Resources have made available a pointers page on copyright and fair use.
The site is divided into four main categories: Primary Materials; Current
Legislation, Cases and Issues; Resources on the Internet; and Overview of
Copyright Law. Each section is divided into subsections that contain the
pointers, many of which are annotated. Of particular interest are several
articles on the impact of copyright and fair use on multimedia, online
resources, and computer programs (found under "Fair Use and Multimedia"),
and a compilation of library copyright guidelines.
The Scout Report is a weekly publication offering a selection of new and
newly discovered Internet resources of interest to researchers and
educators, the InterNIC's primary audience. However, everyone is welcome
to subscribe to one of the mailing lists (plain text or HTML).
Subscription instructions are included at the end of each report.
