Dans le labyrinthe du domaine public | Slate - 0 views

    Alexis Boisseau - 21 septembre 2011 "Comment sait-on qu'une œuvre fait désormais partie du domaine public et que, tout en restant une création de son auteur original (ce qu'on appelle le «droit moral», qui est éternel), on peut la rééditer ou réinterpréter sans payer de «droits patrimoniaux»? La loi est un bon premier guide, mais elle est tellement truffée d'exceptions qu'on ne peut se soustraire à des recherches parfois très longues. Dans la situation la plus courante, quand l'œuvre est «individuelle», les droits subsistent pour les ayants droits 70 ans après le 1er janvier qui suit la mort de l'auteur. Cette règle est née d'une directive européenne qui n'a été transposée en droit français qu'en 1997 et remplace, pour les œuvres qui n'étaient pas dans le domaine public au 31 décembre 1995 la durée de 50 ans de protection qui était en vigueur avant."

    In French, but very clearly written, so maybe Google Translate won't make too much of a hash of it.

The Common Sense of the Fair-Use Doctrine - Commentary - The Chronicle of Higher Education - 1 views

  •  
    While checking final edits on their new book, two media-studies scholars are informed by their publisher that they must secure permission to use a magazine cover as an illustration of one of their assertions. Instead of dropping the graphic or making cold calls to the magazine, the scholars explain their fair-use rights under copyright-and the publisher's general counsel agrees.

Rogue Downloader's Arrest Could Mark Crossroads for Open-Access Movement - Technology -... - 0 views

  •  
    "July 31, 2011 By David Glenn Cambridge, Mass. This past April in Switzerland, Lawrence Lessig gave an impassioned lecture denouncing publishers' paywalls, which charge fees to read scholarly research, thus blocking most people from access. It was a familiar theme for Mr. Lessig, a professor at Harvard Law School who is one of the world's most outspoken critics of intellectual-property laws. But in this speech he gave special attention to JSTOR, a not-for-profit journal archive. He cited a tweet from a scholar who called JSTOR "morally offensive" for charging $20 for a six-page 1932 article from the California Historical Society Quarterly. The JSTOR archive is not usually cast as a leading villain by open-access advocates. But Mr. Lessig surely knew in April something that his Swiss audience did not: Aaron Swartz-a friend and former Harvard colleague of Mr. Lessig's-was under investigation for misappropriating more than 4.8 million scholarly papers and other files from JSTOR. On July 19, exactly three months after Mr. Lessig's speech, federal prosecutors unsealed an indictment charging that Mr. Swartz had abused computer networks at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and disrupted JSTOR's servers. If convicted on all counts, Mr. Swartz faces up to 35 years in prison."

US anti-piracy body targets foreign website owners for extradition | Technology | The G... - 0 views

    Peter Walker guardian.co.uk, Sunday 3 July 2011 "Britons could face charges for breaking US copyrights even if they have no link to America and servers are based elsewhere" "British website owners could face extradition to the US on piracy charges even if their operation has no connection to America and does something which is most probably legal in the UK, the official leading US web anti-piracy efforts has told the Guardian. The US's Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) is targeting overseas websites it believes are breaking US copyrights whether or not their servers are based in America or there is another direct US link, said Erik Barnett, the agency's assistant deputy director. As long as a website's address ends in .com or .net, if it is implicated in the spread of pirated US-made films, TV or other media it is a legitimate target to be closed down or targeted for prosecution, Barnett said."

EUROPA - Press Releases - Orphan works - Frequently asked questions - 0 views

  •  
    Reference: MEMO/11/333 Date: 24/05/2011 "What does the proposal for a Directive on orphan works say? The Commission's proposal, which takes the form of an EU Directive, rests on three pillars. First, the proposal contains rules on how to identify orphan works. It provides that the user has to conduct a diligent search to find the copyright holder. In this search, the user should rely on sources such as databases and registries. One such tool that exists in the book publishing sector is ARROW, the Accessible Registry of Rights Information and Orphan Works. It is hoped that other sectors will also develop similar central rights information databases. Doing so would greatly simplify and streamline the conduct of a reliable diligent search. Secondly, the proposal establishes that if the diligent search does not yield the identity or location of the copyright holder, the work shall be recognised as an orphan work. This status shall then, by virtue of mutual recognition, be valid across the European Union. This implies that once a work is recognised as an orphan work, it shall be recognised as such across the European Union. The proposal also foresees that there will be a generally accessible record of all recognised orphan works. Thirdly, the proposal establishes the uses that can be made of the orphan works and the conditions for such uses depending on their nature. Thus, the current proposal should make a major contribution to the development of various European digital library initiatives and their accessibility for everyone throughout the European Union. Clear rules on what works can be posted online as orphan works will also provide the beneficiaries of the Directive - not only libraries, museums and archives but also film heritage institutions and public service broadcasters - with a sound legal framework that safeguards them against claims of copyright infringement. In this respect, a degree of legal certainty can be achieved that will exceed the one th

    " Proposal for a directive Public consultations and hearings Public Hearing on Orphan Works (26.10.2009) Information hearing on the "Google Book Settlement Agreement" (07.09.2009) Related documents Proposal for a directive The Commission has adopted a Proposal for a Directive on certain permitted uses of orphan works with a view to establishing common rules on the digitisation and online display of so-called orphan works. Orphan works are works like books, newspaper and magazine articles, and films that are still protected by copyright but whose authors are not known or cannot be located or contacted to obtain copyright permissions. Orphan works are part of the collections held by European libraries that might remain untouched if no common rules are developed to make their digitisation and online display legally possible. Common rules on how to deal with such works are therefore necessary in order to proceed with large-scale digitisation projects, such as the Commission's Europeana portal.
