Kitap Listesi Değerlendirmesi

As with the previous edition (2009), this single volume is a good first resource for librarians who want to gain a better understanding of how to license digital content. Copyright lawyer and educator Harris (Digital Property, 1997) offers readers firsthand advice and knowledge that is helpful in license-agreement negotiations. The revised version of this book is well organized and updated to help professionals with the licensing process. The book includes detailed chapters, analysis, terminology, a thorough index, and examples of copyright law, all compiled by an expert in the field.--Wick , Harrison Copyright 2010 Booklist

"Library Journal" İncelemesi

Harris, ex-senior copyright officer in Canada and author of Digital Property: Currency of the 21st Century (McGraw-Hill Professional, 1998), has taken a complex subject and written, in lay readers' terms, guidelines for the licensing of digital content. She includes chapters on items such as the step-by-step process of the licensing experience, tips on different clauses for the agreement, and negotiation. There is also a good question-and-answer section. The author is very knowledgeable about the subject and feels strongly that licensing is something librarians can do for themselves without hiring an attorney. If there are any negative aspects of the volume, it's the price, which seems a bit steep for a book that runs 137 pages. While global issues are supposed to be covered, the author's primary interest is U.S. and Canadian copyright law. Harris also includes an appendix of sections 107 and 108 of the U.S. those libraries that license digital materials. Robert Martindale, Patent Libn., Dallas P.L. (c) Copyright 2010.
