Format: Paperback
The Librarian's Guide To Intellectual Property In The Digital Age by Timothy Lee Wherry (Director, The Robert E. Eiche Library, Pennsylvania State University) is a solid reference and informative introduction to the basics of copyrights, patents, and trademarks and written especially to serve the needs and questions of librarians. The issue of what constitutes fair use, modern-day disputes over file swapping services such as Napster, common misconceptions about patents, and a great deal more, is presented in easy-to-understand terms, in a text that sometimes adopts a question-and-answer format. The Librarian's Guide To Intellectual Property In The Digital Age is a highly recommended addition to professional and academic "Library Science" supplemental reading lists and reference collections.
