Copyright



Hello,

I think the following announcement about an on-line copyright tutorial
at Indiana University might interest members of this list. Sorry about
the length, but it seems to be necessary.

The announcement begins...

>      The Copyright Management Center for Indiana
>      University is delighted to invite you to
>      participate in this innovative and updated
>      opportunity for learning about the meaning of
>      copyright for your teaching, research, and other
>      activities at the university.  The Indiana
>      University Online Copyright Tutorial is a series
>      of short, informal, readable, and (we hope)
>      helpful messages delivered to you in electronic
>      form, via a listserv, approximately three times
>      per week.  The new series will begin September 2
>      and extend through the fall semester.

>      *****************************************************
>      Copyright is rapidly changing.  The inaugural
>      tutorial has been revised and updated to include
>      new trends, developments, and strategies in
>      copyright, such as:
>
>      *  A new court decision that directly
>         addresses the fair use of historical
>         and literary manuscripts for scholarly
>         purposes;
>
>      *  Legislation in Congress that may change
>         the term of protection for copyrights;
>
>      *  New court rulings about the possible
>         immunity of state colleges and
>         universities from infringement claims;
>
>      *  Developments in the law for distance
>         learning; and
>
>      *  Congressional action to create new
>         "copyright-like" protections for
>         databases and to secure digital
>         information resources.
