      "Derivative Works 2.0: Reconsidering Transformative Use in the Age of Crowdsourced Creation"

      Posted in Copyright, Digital Copyright Wars on May 20th, 2015

      Jacqueline D. Lipton and John Tehranian have published "Derivative Works 2.0: Reconsidering Transformative Use in the Age of Crowdsourced Creation" in the Northwestern University Law Review.

      Here's an excerpt:

      As such, this Article reflects on the particular problems raised by the growth of crowdsourced projects and how our copyright regime can best address them. We conclude that future legal developments will require a thoughtful and sophisticated balance to facilitate free speech, artistic expression, and commercial profit. To this end, we suggest a number of options for legal reform, including: (1) reworking the strict liability basis of copyright infringement for noncommercial works, (2) tempering damages awards for noncommercial or innocent infringement, (3) creating an "intermediate liability" regime that gives courts a middle ground between infringement and fair use, (4) developing clearer ex ante guidelines for fair use, and (5) reworking the statutory definition of "derivative work" to exclude noncommercial remixing activities.

          The Digital POWRR Project—A Final Report to the Institute of Museum and Library Services

          Posted in Digital Curation & Digital Preservation on May 20th, 2015

          Jaime L. Schumacher has self-archived The Digital POWRR Project—A Final Report to the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

          Here's an excerpt:

          The POWRR project investigated and reported on scalable digital preservation (DP) solutions for small and mid-sized institutions often faced with small staff sizes, restricted IT infrastructures, and tight budgets. Its major deliverable, a white paper, has been well-received and widely read. During the investigation, POWRR uncovered the particular challenges and needs of under-resourced institutions and worked to address and overcome obstacles that often prevent practitioners from taking initial steps in preserving digital content. As a result, POWRR also delivered a well-marked, practical path towards sustainable digital stewardship by: creating a graphic-based tool grid that maps the functionalities of 60+ DP tools/services to an OAIS-based curation lifecycle; developing and teaching a pragmatic, hands-on workshops across the country on the initial steps necessary to accession digital content and how to realistically approach developing a DP program; and producing case studies, collaboration models, and other tools to aid smaller institutions in their DP efforts.

                    In May 2014, Jisc and ARMA commissioned eight HEI ORCID Pilot projects to support the broader use of ORCID unique researcher identifiers (ORCID iDs) in UK higher education. Information Power Ltd and Research Consulting Ltd were commissioned to prepare this report on the results of the eight pilot projects in order to:

                    • Inform how ORCID is implemented in UK HEIs;
                    • Enable institutional managers to build a business case for ORCID adoption in HEIs; and
                    • Encourage wider adoption of ORCID IDs

                    The report is based on semi-structured interviews with the Jisc-ARMA ORCID pilot projects and other research community stakeholders conducted either face-to-face or through telephone/Skype interviews, attendance at the September 2014 and January 2015 pilot project workshops and desk-based review of other relevant evidence.
