ISBN13: 9781856046084
Published: October 2007
Publisher: Facet Publishing
Country of Publication: UK
Format: Paperback
Price: Out of print

Digital copyright is still a relatively new field, and is a potential minefield for information professionals. This book examines how copyright applies in the electronic environment. It asks whether digital content is treated differently than hard-copy material, and if so how. The second edition includes a new chapter that takes an in-depth look at digital rights management, taking account of the All Party Internet Group's findings public inquiry published in June 2006. It also offers a new section on copyright clearance for digital content; current examples of the penalties imposed for file sharing, piracy, counterfeiting; and more case law examples. Topics covered include:

  • database right
  • the application of copyright to websites and intranets
  • the use of screenshots in presentations
  • hyperlinking and deep linking
  • how the copyright exceptions apply to digital content
  • licences, contracts, or a set of terms and conditions
  • the interface between copyright law and contract law
  • model licence agreements
  • The Copyright And Related Rights Regulations 2003 - including the new offences, particularly relating to the removal or alteration of rights management information; and the question of circumventing technological protection measures such as digital rights management systems
  • digital signatures
  • relevant legal cases
  • further reading.
