Playing with Technology

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. ~Arthur C. Clarke

It seems that even Professors don’t know the laws about copyright

This is an old story but I haven’t been able to blog because of work. I’m on break now so I’m trying to catch up on posts.

The Seattle Post Intelligencer ran a story in its business section on Nov. 20th with the title “Professors get ‘F’ in copyright protection knowledge.” The main beef comes from book publishers who are upset that a growing number of professors are using excerpts and in many cases large excerpts of texts to create course packs and not requiring students to purchase books. It is another “fair use” interpretation issue. I am sure this will be on the agenda for the copyright workshop at Claremont.
