5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Nancy M. McCoy on September 3, 2003
Format: Paperback
In Copyright Law on Campus, Intellectual Property Lawyer and College Instructor Marc Lindsey provides, in a succinct, easy-to-digest 55 pages, the single most valuable resource on the esoteric law of copyrights that I have ever seen.
The book was designed to provide general information on copyright law as it pertains to the classroom environment, and, clearly, every college professor and administrator should retain a copy in his or her office for easy reference. But the information is also a precious gift for students who struggle throughout their academic careers with copyright questions to which no one around them ever seems to know the answers. In addition, Copyright Law on Campus will be invaluable to practitioners, especially those not so well versed in copyright law, and should give them access to all the answers in this area of the law that they will ever need in their law practices.
Although documented as meticulously and thoroughly as a law review article, Lindsey's book is easy to confront and presents a very pleasant read. It is not nearly as intimidating as the underlying subject matter, and that is its essential virtue.
Copyright Law on Campus covers briefly the source and nature of copyright law, and then goes into the nuts and bolts. The author explains about the duration of copyrights and the public domain, tells you what the risks of infringing are, and explains to you how to actually get permission. He makes sense of the arcane law of ?fair use,? and provides valuable, practical information about the timely topic of copyright law and the internet. He explains several other issues relevant to the University environment, and even provides data on how institutions of higher learning can collect and utilize desperately needed policies regarding copyright issues.
