  • Description

In this updated version of Technology and Copyright Law the authors expand on new developments in the world of copyright, including those in the areas of legislation and case law. Special chapters provide information on the law’s enablement for those who work with the blind and physically handicapped, and the use of copyrighted materials in distance education. Divided into four parts, this valuable resource covers topics that include:

* Existing law -- what was it’s intention, how it developed, where it’s going
* Guidance for making copyright decisions in day-to-day situations
* Electronic classroom and international copyright agreements
* Glossary of important terms and phrases and mandated words
* Lists of exclusive rights of copyright holders, as well as limitations on those rights
* The TEACH Act and its implications for libraries and classrooms
