This talk focused on topics that collection managers need to consider.
I found the following resources useful:
Wikipedia list of copyright term lengths
Cornell’s Guide to copyright
Cornell’s older guide to copyright
ALA Copyright tools
Wikipedia article on copyright
US Copyright Office Circulars
Other interesting things include:
Database Rights — What happens when public domain audio is distributed, is that distributed form a database? Where are the limits on the definition of “Database”?
- The issue of database rights is interesting because
TRIPS does require it to be added to national laws, but the USA doesn’t currently have it.
