Online Colloquy: Fair Use & Academic PublishingEmail This EntryPrint This Entry
Posted by Donna Wentworth

Chronicle of Higher Education (hyperlinks and emphasis, mine):


Indiana University Press's withdrawal of a scholarly reader on the Anglo-American composer Rebecca Clarke is just the latest example of scholarship bowing to the assertion of copyright claims. The case law on fair use is decidedly murky, but increasingly aggressive assertions of copyright are affecting the willingness of publishers to include any material that asserts a right to "fair use" of copyrighted materials. So just what use are "fair use" provisions in copyright law if presses lack the wherewithal to challenge copyright claimants? Do such cases create a "chilling effect" on scholarship and in academic publishing? What steps can be taken by scholars and other groups interested in copyright law to protect the shrinking arena for fair use? When, indeed, can such claims be asserted?

Wendy Seltzer[,] a staff attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation and a fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School[,] will respond to questions and comments on these issues on Wednesday, July 14, at 1 p.m., U.S. Eastern time. Questions and comments are welcome and may be posted now.
