Copyright and copywrong
This is "me"
If you’ve been keeping up with this sort of thing you’ll know that, although there is always a lot of angst about copyright, there has been more than usual just lately. In November of 2010 David Cameron announced there would be a review of UK copyright law and in there should have been a report published in April but it ended up published in May
. There were lots of, so-called, leaks and loads of arguments flying backwards and forwards – it kept Twitter very busy. I’ve been looking around at copyright over the last few weeks, just to keep up-to-date for my work. I thought you might be interested in these three sites, The Copyright Advisory Office
from Columbia University (remember this is American copyright law), Copyright and research in the humanities and social sciences
from the British Academy. I thought this other site was quite interesting too, The Copyright Clearance Centre
, helpful but don’t forget that although it works globally it’s an American company. You might also find the podcast series, “on the business of writing and publishing”, Beyond the Book, produced by The Copyright Clearance Centre interesting too. This most recent podcast
is on the discussions going on in the European Union about Copyright.
