There is a newer edition of this item:
"This slim volume, which tackles a very large topic, is one of the most useful resources I have come across in a long time. Clear explanations of complex issues provide basic information about an essential topic that librarians and educators confront on a day-to-day basis." "Crews has been conducting a one-man crusade to make copyright more understandable to librarians...[A] perfect primer of what there is to know... Producing a simple guide to the broad outlines of a complex area can be dauntingly difficult. Crews has done an admirable job." "This is an extremely useful book, not only for librarians and teachers but also for writers, musicians, graphic artists, sculptors, photographers, and other creative people who are concerned in protecting their ownership rights in works they have created. Copyright law is extremely complex and no explanatory guide can make it less so." ..".an excellent contribution to the literature on copyright in the academy. Although it will be most useful to librarians and teachers with little copyright experience, even the most seasoned copyright expert would probably benefit from keeping such a well-organized reference tool near at hand." ..".a concise, easy-to-use handbook of basic copyright facts... [R]ecommended as a valuable and convenient reference on applicable copyright law for academic librarians and is delivered with Crews' inimitable style." "Crews's documentation is meticulous, and the format is readable... Providing an excellent guide to essentials, Crews's title will be most useful for college and university librarians and educators and for librarians in public libraries." "The idea of a brief, succinct outline of copyright law is very appealing; for busy educators and librarians it can serve as a place to review any topic, or the entire book can serve as a starting point for those who need information."
