Overview

This volume provides thorough coverage of some troublesome and seldom clarified issues that affect scholars who deal with nonprint media. When is it legitimate in teaching or publishing to quote a visual image from television, film or printed graphics? To quote the lines from a musical lyric? Why has the long tradition of fair use for printed material, which sanctions quoting without permission, been so slow in its extension to other media? How can scholars and publishers prudently behave in an area where media corporations are uncooperative or belligerent in dealing with requests to document arguments through the inclusion of copyrighted materials? This book offers a forum where scholars, lawyers, archivists, and federal administrators of copyright law express informed viewpoints about these issues.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The "new media" include television, film, printed graphics and music lyrics. The issue is the legal propriety of "quoting" visual images and lyrics. This revised edition remains the most comprehensive analysis of the relationship between copyright law and freedom of information. Significant revisions reflect changing technologies, legislative guidelines, and recent court decisions in the area of fair use, as well as attendant legal and social issues. New and revised text accounts for more than half the contents of this edition. Price to individuals, $32.50. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
