Library of Congress launches web site on Independent Copyright Committee
The Library of Congress yesterday issued a press release:
“Library Launches Web Site on Independent Copyright Committee.”
By 2006, this committee will recommend changes to copyright law that recognize the need for exceptions to the law for libraries and archives in the digital age.
The site, at http://www.loc.gov/section108, offers the group’s mission statement, its schedule of meetings and links to relevant sections of the Copyright Act. The site also offers links to background papers pertinent to libraries and archives and the rights issues they encounter when working with digital materials.
