 Ad*Access: Seeking Copyright Permissions for a Digital Age
Creating access to digital images of historic documents, images, and maps is a vital service that many libraries and archives are providing for their patrons, local and international.
It is sufficient to say that the cost and time requirements of the copyright segment of Ad*Access were unknown at the beginning of the project, and the amount of hours finally needed for this one aspect was a surprise to all involved.
The copyright law of 1909, under which the ads in the project originally fell, required that a notice of copyright be affixed to each copy (or forfeit copyright), and that the item be registered with the Register of Copyrights (noncompliance possibly causing a fine or the voiding of copyright).

 Limitations and Exceptions to Copyright and Neighbouring Rights in the Digital Environment: An International Library ...
Copyright can be defined as a person's exclusive right to authorize certain acts (such as reproduction, publication, public performance, adaptation etc.) in relation to his or her original work of authorship.
A copyright owner’s capacity to control the use of his or her work is limited to the suite of rights, which is specifically granted by the copyright regime.
National copyright laws should ultimately aim for a balance between the rights of copyright owners to protect their interests through technical means and the rights of users to circumvent such measures for legitimate, non-infringing purposes.

 AAU/ACE/NASULGC comment on the Copyright Office Notice of Inquiry
Restrictions on access to these works, particularly where the user has lawful possession of a copy of the work, are highly likely to interfere with fair use and will be particularly damaging.
Two core principles of copyright law bear on the decision whether to extend the deferral of 1201(a): the right to reproduce facts, information and ideas contained within copyrighted works; and the fair use of copyrighted works.
Accordingly, absent a strong showing that circumvention of access control technology will reduce incentives to create these works, per se civil and criminal liability for circumvention (without regard to whether or not the underlying use of the work is infringing) should continue to be deferred.

 Copyright collective - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A copyright collective (also known as a copyright collecting agency or collecting society) is a body created by private agreements or by copyright law that collects royalty payments from various individuals and groups for copyright holders.
They may have the authority to license works and collect royalties as part of a statutory scheme or by entering into an agreement with the copyright owner to represent the owners interests when dealing with licensees and potential licensees.
The underlying idea of collective copyright management is widely shared and collecting societies have a key role in all developed countries.

 Open Access Webliography
As outlined "Budapest Open Access Initiative" (http://www.soros.org/openaccess/read.shtml), there are two basic strategies used to achieve open access: (1) self-archiving (making electronic preprints and postprints available on author home pages or depositing them in digital archives and repositories), and (2) open access journals.
The Alliance for Taxpayer Access is "a diverse and growing alliance of organizations representing taxpayers, patients, physicians, researchers, and institutions that support open public access to taxpayer-funded research." The initial focus of ATA is on ensuring that scholarly articles resulting from NIH-funded research are freely available.
The Declaration and the Plan emphasize the significance of "universal access with equal opportunities for all to scientific knowledge and the creation and dissemination of scientific and technical information, including open access initiatives for scientific publishing."

 Peter Suber, Promoting Open Access in the Humanities
Intelligent copyright reform would enlarge and preserve the public domain and thereby enlarge the domain of works for which there are no permission barriers to access.
Hence the taxpayer argument for open access (that taxpayers shouldn't have to pay a second fee for access to the results of taxpayer-funded research) is stronger in the STM fields than the humanities.
Hence, for open access journals that cover their expenses through processing fees on accepted articles, the fees would have to be higher at the average humanities journal than at the average STM journal.

 Copyright Law Pits Disability Access against Intellectual Property Rights
Sklyarov was primarily motivated by a desire to enhance information access for people with disabilities, his program did have that result because it allowed Adobe ebooks to be copied into formats which are more accessible and more user friendly to assistive technology users.
Sklyarov was prosecuted under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 which at least as applied by the U.S. Department of Justice in this case, dramatically broadens the scope of legal protections for intellectual property, such as computer operating systems, and increases the role of the criminal law in copyright enforcement.
Put another way, the danger now seems all too real that unless a developer of access software gets permission from the owner of the application being accessed, such a developer could potentially face criminal prosecution for trafficking or conspiracy to traffic in technology that interferes with the rights of copyright owners.

 Copyright, Access and Digital Texts: Introduction
To date, discussions of literacy and access have largely focused on how specific groups on the periphery are marginalized by technology, and in doing so, continue to usefully revise our understanding of the Digital Divide.
For example, in "Access: The 'A' Word in Technology Studies," Charles Moran asks educators to be aware that "computers are unequally distributed to teachers and learners in our educational system, and that we agree, too, that access to emerging technologies is a function of wealth and social class" (215).
Discussions of access in literacy studies have largely failed to address one issue where access is not only a function of class, but affects all technology users.

 Paying protection money to Access Copyright. | Digital Copyright Canada
While the language of "exceptions" is always abused in the copyright debate, what we are really talking about is an attempt by educators and independent authors to stop Access Copyright from imposing themselves on their competitors.
What Access Copyright is asking for is no more legitimate than trying to collect a royalty each time someone reads a book, claiming that if people want to read books multiple times without additional payment that they are "pirates".
While Access Copyright wants expensive lawyers in the pockets of all authors, and complex legalistic documents to express simple concepts, most Internet-era authors have been able to navigate these issues and the technology without this "protection".
