No restrictions on use. After 10 Years, Google Books Is Legal On Friday, a federal circuit court made clear that Google Books is legal. A three-judge panel on the Second Circuit ruled decisively for the software giant against the Authors Guild, a professional group of published writers which had alleged Google’s scanning of library books and displaying of free “snippets” online violated its members’s copyright. To some digital-rights followers, the Google Books case had seemed to drag on forever: The Authors Guild first filed suit 10 years ago. But the theory behind the eventual ruling was a quarter-century in the making. In 1990, a district-court judge named Pierre Leval published an article in the Harvard Law Review proposing a new theory of fair use.
Teaching Copyright As today's tech-savvy teens become increasingly involved with technology and the Internet for learning, work, civic engagement, and entertainment, it is vital to ensure that they understand their legal rights and responsibilities under copyright law and also how the law affects creativity and innovation. This curriculum is designed to give teachers a comprehensive set of tools to educate students about copyright while incorporating activities that exercise a variety of learning skills. Lesson topics include: the history of copyright law; the relationship between copyright and innovation; fair use and its relationship to remix culture; peer-to-peer file sharing; and the interests of the stakeholders that ultimately affect how copyright is interpreted by copyright owners, consumers, courts, lawmakers, and technology innovators. Unit Goals Educate students about copyright law, including the concepts of fair use, free speech, and the public domain. Objectives for Students

3-D Printers: Understanding Copyright, Fair Use, and More Libraries have been on the front lines of the digital revolution since its beginning. 3-D printing is the latest wave of this revolution, which continues to fundamentally change the way we access, process, and produce information. This technology brings digitization to the physical marketplace for the first time, by allowing people of all ages to use digital processes to create tangible items that can be used, traded, bought and sold. It promises progress across numerous industries and sectors. The burgeoning field of “bioprinting”—the printing of human organs—creates new opportunities for medical research; the use of 3-D printing in defense manufacturing enhances U.S. national security by allowing for the more efficient production and delivery of intricate items used by the military; and the successful deployment of 3-D printing technology to outer space heralds a day when thousands of miles and a lack of gravity no longer constrain the delivery of supplies to astronauts.
Copyright: Will We Always Be Behind the Times? I dusted off my copyright presentation the other day, getting ready to talk to a journalism class full of juniors. The task the teacher and I were hoping to accomplish was to help the students better understand copyright and the use of digital images in their online blog magazine publications. As I prepared, just for fun, I pulled the books on copyright that I have as resources for staff in our professional collection.
