ATG Article of the Week of May 30, 2011
What’s at Stake in the Georgia State Copyright Case. The Chronicle of Higher Education, May 30, 2011.
This lawsuit was one of ATG’s Hot Topics for Friday, May 27. This article delineates many of the issues in the case and includes comments from authorities like Kevin L. Smith (Duke University, Director of Scholarly Communications), Siva Vaidhyanathan (Professor of media studies and law, University of Virginia), David E. Shulenburger (Senior Fellow, Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities and former executive vice-chancellor and provost of the University of Kansas), Kate Douglas Torrey (Director, University of North Carolina Press), Dorothea Salo (Research services librarian, University of Wisconsin at Madison), and Brandon Butler (Director of public-policy initiatives, Association of Research Libraries). Perhaps Brandon Butler has the most conciliatory approach when he urges a clear statement of Best Practices from the “key practice community.”
