    What copyright considerations effect MOOC?
    Are technology transfer issues at stake?

    Both discussed very nicely in this paper?
  •  
    The issue of copyright has always been a contentious issue long before the introduction of MOOCs. The debate, now that we have MOOCs in our midst will continue as we try to find a common ground. The issue on the table is fair play.
  •  
    The article addresses the copyright challenges in a MOOC environment. Very useful reading as it discusses the IPR issues we generally do not think of.

Clearing Up the Copyright Confusion: Fair Dealing and Bill C-32 - Michael Geist - 1 views

  •  
    Description: "Fair dealing has played a prominent role in the hearings on Bill C-32, with education and creator groups debating the merits and impact of the proposed reforms.  Unfortunately, much of the discussion has confused rather than clarified the issue with misleading claims about potential losses, inaccurate comments on copyright and Internet materials, and dubious arguments about the compliance of the reforms under international copyright law."

In Twist, Publishers Appeal Their 'Win' in GSU Copyright Case - 0 views

  •  
    In a surprise move, the publisher plaintiffs in the closely-watched Georgia State University copyright case have asked for a full (en banc) hearing by the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, despite the fact that a three-judge panel handed them a victory last month when it unanimously reversed a 2012 district court verdict against them.

SIPX: Digital Course Materials, the Way You Want - 3 views

  •  
    I really cannot recommend this resource highly enough. The brainchild and master's thesis of a lawyer-turned-information professional, SIPX is an incredible blend of copyright control centre, digital distribution hub, and online marketplace. With the impending downfall of Access Copyright and its rejection by most Canadian universities, schools have had to quickly learn about copyright and establish good practices and guidelines, but this product provides the safest legal protection while considerably upgrading the dissemination of course readings; it also makes strides that push against the dominance of the traditional textbook market. It has already been adopted by several major American universities, including Stanford (where it was developed; it seems all the greatest open knowledge stuff is coming out of there!) and Notre Dame. Did I mention that it even supports MOOCs?

    I just found out about this resource while doing a practicum placement for library school, and I can't believe that I'd never heard of it before. It's exactly the kind of integrated library and informational system that needs to happen in academic institutions, and while it's not explicitly modelled on open access, it relies on many of the same values that we've talked about throughout this course. Check it out!

    interesting website that provides free access to several books and educational resources about the public domain, plus an interesting blog. [i can't remember if this was already a course reading, but I thought I should include it anyway...]

Bound by Law (comic book about fair use) - 1 views

  •  
    an exciting comic book created by the Center for the Study of Public Domain (Duke University), that explores fair use, copyright, and public domain. It is important to note that the way they distribute the book is also amazingly open--they provide download of many formats to enable easy access and easy reuse.

Support Guides | Copyright @ UBC - 2 views

  •  
    If you're taking this course out of Canada, the Copyright @ UBC website has a lot of really good information available to you. Guides specifically relevant to this course include the Creative Commons Guide (where you can find information about using CC licensed work, applying CC licenses to your own work, and several lists of websites where you can find CC licensed work) and the Public Domain Guide (where you can find information about how to determine if something is in the public domain in Canada). The entire site is CC BY-SA (except where otherwise indicated) though, so the entire thing is a resource for copyright questions in Canada.

I feel like copyright terms are way too long in general, but I have to say that I get a kick out of someone using them like this.

COPY-ME Web Series - 0 views

  •  
    "Copy-me is an animated web series about the sharing of knowledge and open culture. About laws, myths and misconceptions, about the Internet and all the benefits of sharing."

    The idea was artistically and satirically presented using animation series for better understanding and appreciation of the audience.

2014 Special 301 Report - 1 views

  •  
    "This Report reflects the Administration's continued resolve to encourage and maintain adequate and effective IPR protection and enforcement worldwide." The report focuses on trade, copyright infringements, and the need to protect the products of creativity. The report discusses the subject globally. It is an extensive report that highlights the increased awareness of copyright protections and cooperation among different countries to legislate against infringements. Very helpful to see the scope of intellectual property rights concerns.

Do the Copyright Thing: Your Use of Origin Images to Sell Coffee May Be Unlawful - 3 views

  •  
    "You've seen it countless times on bags, coffee shop walls and on coffee company websites: The image of a farmer picking ripe coffee cherries, designed to connect consumers to the origin of their coffee and perhaps even provide a face for farmers themselves", RoastMagazine. My question: Do you think a coffee grower could sue any of these companies?
