A Practical Guide To Working With Copyrighted And Open Access Resources In Scholarship, Liz Thompson, Howard Carrier Apr 2021

A Practical Guide To Working With Copyrighted And Open Access Resources In Scholarship, Liz Thompson, Howard Carrier

Libraries

Powerpoints and conference presentations are often complemented by use of images or other media, and the academic content of a paper may draw from existing scholarly sources. In the traditional, in-person conference meeting room, the use of other rightsholders’ content is relatively risk-free but things change when academic conferences move online, as is increasingly the case today in the lamentable age of COVID-19. In this webinar, two librarians from JMU Libraries’ Scholarly Communication Unit share thoughts, ideas, and tips about staying on the right side of copyright law when presenting and disseminating scholarship.

Copyright, Fair Use, And Creative Commons: An Active-Learning Exercise For Studio Art Students, Arthur J. Boston

Faculty & Staff Research and Creative Activity

Although a scholarly communication librarian developed this exercise to help introduce some basic copyright information to an undergraduate studio art and design class, the exercise …

The New Legal Landscape For Text Mining And Machine Learning, Matthew Sag Jan 2019

The New Legal Landscape For Text Mining And Machine Learning, Matthew Sag

Faculty Articles

Now that the dust has settled on the Authors Guild cases, this Article takes stock of the legal context for TDM research in the United States. This reappraisal begins in Part I with an assessment of exactly what the Authors Guild cases did and did not establish with respect to the fair use status of text mining. Those cases held unambiguously that reproducing copyrighted works as one step in the process of knowledge discovery through text data mining was transformative, and thus ultimately a fair use of those works. Part I explains why those rulings followed inexorably from copyright's most …

Integrating Fair Use Into Information Literacy: Perspectives From The Georgia State University Ereserves And Hathitrust Copyright Infringement Cases, Laura Burtle, Mariann Burright Sep 2016

Integrating Fair Use Into Information Literacy: Perspectives From The Georgia State University Ereserves And Hathitrust Copyright Infringement Cases, Laura Burtle, Mariann Burright

University Library Faculty Presentations

Fair use is essential to information literacy because it empowers the student to use the works of others legally. Fair use in U.S. Copyright Law allows people to use the works of others without asking their permission under certain circumstances. But because fair use is a balancing test rather than bright line rules, it ultimately takes a court to decide its boundaries. The Georgia State University eReserves and the HathiTrust cases offer new decisions on applying fair use in higher education. The presenters will discuss an overview of the cases and provide approaches of how to integrate them into an …
