Dear Colleagues,

Appreciated additional responses and
thoughts on copyright.

One post deserves comment: someone
wrote a note to the effect that much of
this discussion involved American issues.
Not so. There are world-wide copyright
laws and mutual recognition of national
laws provided under the Berne
Convention.

Nearly all nations have copyright laws,
and most honor other nations' laws --
at least in principle, though enforcement
of claims is sometimes difficult in fact.

There are several web sites devoted
to copyright information:

The Copyright Web Site

http://www.benedict.com/

US Copyright Office Home Page

http://www.loc.gov/copyright/

The UT System Crash Course in Copyright

http://www.utsystem.edu/OGC/IntellectualProperty/cprtindx.htm

Stanford University Fair Use Web Site

http://fairuse.stanford.edu/

Australian Copyright Council

http://www.copyright.org.au/

UK Copyright Licensing Agency Home Page

http://www.cla.co.uk/

Copyright resources Online at Yale University

http://www.library.yale.edu/~okerson/copyproj.html

Copyright Resources for Web Builders and Multimedia

http://bailiwick.lib.uiowa.edu/webbuilder/copyright.html

There is plenty more on the Web for those
who wish to look more deeply into
copyright and intellectual property
rights.

It will interest you to know that not
all is yet said and done in the copyright
case over "Wind Done Gone."

      'WIND' BOOK WINS RULING IN U.S. COURT

      By DAVID D. KIRKPATRICK

  The United States Court of Appeals in Atlanta overturned a preliminary
  injunction yesterday blocking publication of "The Wind Done Gone," a
  novel that revisits the plantation setting of "Gone With the Wind" from a
  slave's perspective.
