The Surprising History of Copyright and The Promise of a Post-Copyright World (Translations: 中文, Italiano, Polski, latviešu valoda. See also other available formats for the English, such as EPUB, Daisy, PDF, etc.) There is one group of people not shocked by the record industry's policy of suing randomly chosen file sharers: historians of copyright. None of this will happen, however, if the industry has its way. The reward for these efforts can be seen in the public's reaction to the file-sharing lawsuits. To read the true history of copyright is to understand just how completely this reaction plays into the industry's hands. Yet a close look at history shows that copyright has never been a major factor in allowing creativity to flourish. The arrival of the Internet, with its instantaneous, costless sharing, has made that business model obsolete — not just obsolete, but an obstacle to the very benefits copyright was alleged to bring society in the first place. But to treat this small group as representative would be to confuse marketing with reality.
MLA Formatting and Style Guide Coming Soon: A new look for our same great content! We're working hard this summer on a redesign of the Purdue OWL. Worry not! Our navigation menu and content will remain largely the same. Summary: MLA (Modern Language Association) style is most commonly used to write papers and cite sources within the liberal arts and humanities.

Creating a Works Cited list using the eighth edition MLA is a style of documentation based on a general methodology that may be applied to many different types of writing.

Copyright Alliance Education Foundation A Short Guide To Open-Source And Similar Licenses Advertisement Many developers and designers want to release their work into the world as open-source projects. They want others to be able to build on and share their code. But many developers and designers don’t have a clear picture of what the different open-source licenses really mean. What Is Licensing? A lot of confusion is out there about what exactly licensing means. Licensing is a great alternative to just releasing your work into the public domain or granting permissions on a case-by-case basis. Open-source licenses2 make it easy for others to contribute to a project without having to seek special permission. GNU General Public License The GNU General Public Licence3 (GPL) is probably one of the most commonly used licenses for open-source projects. Copy the software. Please note that it is very important to see source and binaries distribution as two very different things. GNU Lesser General Public License BSD License MIT License What this means is that: Apache License (al) Footnotes
6 elements of a successful iPad implementation By Samantha Messier and Stephanie Schroeder 11/17/2014 Topics: Mobile Learning, 1-to-1, Professional learning As more districts across the United States move to 1:1 initiatives, a common barrier is financial resources, and a common temptation is to regard these initiatives as technology enterprises rather than instructional transformations. In a three-year pilot project, the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) addressed these challenges by implementing a creative approach designed to entice public funders by providing all students with equitable access to digital devices. A key feature of our model was synergy among multiple, interdependent program elements: Community engagement A strong instructional model Digital devices and apps for students Logistical support Guidance toward high-leverage resources Ongoing, embedded professional development None of these elements alone is sufficient. 1. We also made every effort to include one of the most important stakeholder groups: parents.

DMCA Exemptions Guest Post by Jan Boyles It’s time to protect the hard-won fair use rights that artists, professors, librarians and online video makers won three years ago at the Copyright Office. The Library of Congress has issued a Notice of Inquiry calling for written comments by December 1. Here's why it matters. But every three years, these exemptions must be renewed. In order to gain an exemption, the individual or group filing the ruling must demonstrate that the strict access controls under the DMCA have adversely impacted the ability of people to create new, non-copyright-infringing material. Intellectual property law clinics and non-profit public interest organizations around the country are now gearing up to provide assistance to people who want help in petitioning for an exemption.

THE PIPELINE: Influence--7 Rules (And You Can’t Just Do One!) They always say that in polite company we don’t talk about politics, religion, or sex. Because, well, it runs the risk of offending someone and sparking fights and passionate opinion. I never believed that, and I love engaging in the good fight for the rights associated with the basic human condition. That said, when we talk about school library funding, you can get a similar reaction. In today’s world, access to information, learning, and technology is a human right in an advanced civil society and especially in a democracy where an informed and educated electorate is critical. Nearly everything we do requires more influence and oversight than it used to. So, here’s a short list of what leaders have built and tried in our profession to influence the success of libraries for learners: 1. Lord knows we have impact studies coming out of the horn of plenty like a tornado spins off cows. 2. We’re seeing some great videos that capture the role of libraries in schools. 3. 4. 5. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
