"British Invasion: How the United Kingdom’s Approach to International Harmonization of Copyright Law Can Inform United States Orphan Works Legislation"

Posted in Copyright, Digital Copyright Wars on June 12th, 2013 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Abigail Bunce has self-archived "British Invasion: How the United Kingdom's Approach to International Harmonization of Copyright Law Can Inform United States Orphan Works Legislation" in SSRN.

Here's an excerpt:

This Note argues that the United States should propose and adopt legislation to resolve the orphan works issue based on the licensing system recently enacted in the United Kingdom. Part I discusses the common economic principles underlying the American and British copyright systems and traces their different approaches to international harmonization. Part II introduces orphan works and the various issues they present, from their first identification through their present controversy within the mass digitization context. Part III discusses the past and current approaches on the American, British, and European Union stages to solve the orphan works issue. Finally, Part IV evaluates and compares the approaches, arguing that while the U.S. should primarily adopt the system advocated by the U.K., the U.K. system could equally benefit from ideas inherent in the U.S. system.

"Brief of Digital Humanities and Law Scholars as Amici Curiae in Authors Guild v. Hathitrust"

Posted in Copyright, Digital Copyright Wars, Digital Humanities, Publishing on June 12th, 2013 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Matthew Jockers, Matthew Sag, and Jason Schultz have self-archived "Brief of Digital Humanities and Law Scholars as Amici Curiae in Authors Guild v. Hathitrust" in SSRN.

Here's an excerpt:

This Amicus Brief was filed in the United States Court of Appeal for the Second Circuit in the case of Authors Guild v. Hathitrust on June 4, 2013. The case is on Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, No. 11 CV 6351 (Baer, J.)

Amici are over 100 professors and scholars who teach, write, and research in computer science, the digital humanities, linguistics or law, and two associations that represent Digital Humanities scholars generally. . . .

The Court's ruling in this case on the legality of mass digitization could dramatically affect the future of work in the Digital Humanities. The Amici argue that the Court should affirm the decision of the district court below that library digitization for the purpose of text mining and similar non-expressive uses present no legally cognizable conflict with the statutory rights or interests of the copyright holders.

"First Aid Training for Those on the Front Lines: Digital Preservation Needs Survey Results 2012"

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management on June 11th, 2013 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Jody L. DeRidder has published "First Aid Training for Those on the Front Lines: Digital Preservation Needs Survey Results 2012" in the latest issue of Information Technology and Libraries.

Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

Every day history is being made and recorded in digital form. Every day, more and more digitally-captured history disappears completely or becomes inaccessible due to obsolescence of hardware, software, and formats. Although it has long been the focus of libraries and archives to retain, organize, and preserve information, these communities face a critical skills gap. Until we have in place the infrastructure, expertise and resources to distil critical information from the digital deluge and preserve it appropriately, what steps can those in the field take to help mitigate the loss of our cultural heritage? This article argues for the need for practical, accessible free or low-cost digital preservation training webinars, and reports on the results of a survey to identify the most important topics and types of materials on which to focus.
