To mentor or to monitior _ Copyright

About the Presentation:

This presentation will review legislative and judicial (limited) developments in the area of copyright law as well as industry initiatives that are shaping the role of information intermediaries such as libraries and schools from one of "mentor" to one of "monitor."

Recent legislation such as the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) and TEACH (Technology, Education and Copyright Harmonization) Act at the forefront of this change is analyzed (facial content analysis), including the respective documentary (legislative) history.

The presentation highlights the increased burden placed upon the intermediary library or educational entity and should be of interest to those individuals concerned with the increasing legal leverage of the copyright owner, as well as those institutional stakeholders that face responsibility for compliance with the new requirements.
