Digital Copyright (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Digital copyright is still a developing area, and is a potential minefield for information professionals. In the UK there is no Act of Parliament specifically addressing copyright for materials in digital form. Rather the profession is reliant on the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, and how this relates to machine-readable content. This book examines in depth how digital content is treated differently from hard-copy material. The second edition includes a new chapter that takes an in-depth look at digital rights management (DRM). It takes account of the All Party Internet Group's findings of their public inquiry into DRM, published in June 2006; and the Gowers Review of Intellectual Property of December 2006. It also offers a new section on copyright clearance for digital content; current examples of the penalties imposed for file sharing, piracy and counterfeiting; and additional case law examples.This title covers topics such as: 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 newoffences, particularly relating to the removal or alteration of rightsmanagement information; and the question of circumventing technical protection measures such as DRM systems; digital signatures; relevant legal cases; and, further reading.

This essential guide will help all information professionals find out what needs to be done to stay within the law in our increasingly digital environment.
