Happy Fair Use Week

February 28, 2018

Copyright resources from ARLIS/NA –

Taking account for the fundamental principles of copyright and the meaning of copyright ownership, a panel presented very current information, recommendations and future plans for digital materials in libraries, archives, museums and galleries. Interesting suggestion to include the MARC 542 field in individual records to describe the rights allowed. From several hundred ways to describe rights, DPLA has worked with others to narrow the field to twelve, giving specifics on what is/is not allowed. e.g. PDUS – public domain United States. Also news, the rolling date will begin in 2019 for works in public domain, adding a year from 1923, in one year increments. Risk assessments were reviewed including, for academic libraries operated under state systems, for sovereign immunity.
