Librarians and information professionals have ethical and legal responsibilities not only to their users, but also to the information they make available - including the copyrighted materials they license, loan, digitize, and deliver. Tomas Lipinski, a library educator, licensed attorney, and frequent presenter of copyright workshops, offers this comprehensive guide to copyright liability issues specifically aimed at libraries and information centers. This guide is a librarian's primer for copyright risk management. It covers direct, contributory, and vicarious infringement; immunity; damage remission; notice provisions; and more. Current, practical, and authoritative, Lipinski includes discussions of the DMCA, TEACH Act, and other recent legislation as well as sample notices, policies, and audit tools. His coverage of print, non-print, and new technologies (Web sites, distance education, circulating software, e-books etc.), makes this handbook essential for public, academic, and school librarians.
