From the Publisher"Although many people think that a book on copyright would be a cure for insomnia, Carol Simpson's writing style and pointed examples create an entertaining and frightening book. Simpson has updated her guide to include recent court cases, revisions of copyright law, and guidelines that affect schools. This edition includes chapters on the law, public domain, fair use, print, audiovisual, music, multimedia, distance learning, and software. Simpson then discusses school library exemptions, permissions, managing copyright, administrators' roles, and policies. The 15 appendices include sample forms, policies, and brochures. Simpson has long been recognized as an expert in school copyright law and many of us read her column, "Copyright Question of the Month," religiously. Her experience enables her to look at many aspects of copyright law to find a reasonable and safe answer. Her practical knowledge of the law plus her knowledge of the reality of schools lifts this book above other guides. Simpson's concrete question and answer sidebars illustrate the law and clarify fine points. Even if you already own the third edition, you will want this update. In the four years since the last edition, there have been new court cases (Napster) and technology continues to make it easier and easier to violate copyright. Index. Highly Recommended."
