What about this?
What is Copyright?
"the exclusive right to make copies, license, and otherwise exploit a literary, musical, or artistic work, whether printed, audio, video, etc.: works granted such right by law on or after January 1, 1978, are protected for the lifetime of the author or creator and for a period of 50 years after his or her death."

Check out the Quizlet we created about copyright!


Locate either a copyright case not discussed, or an instance of copyright (film, books, music) and discuss the aspects of it in the discussion forum. Who was involved in the case? Did it go to trial? What form of copyright did it deal with? What was the outcome? What are potential implications for the LIS community?

(Hint: Google Scholar is a good place to check! Switch it over to "case law" before you search! The American Library Association also has some great resources (http://www.ala.org/advocacy/copyright/court). )
