Occupy Copyright! Occupy Copyright! Document Transcript

  • OCCUPY COPYRIGHT before it destroys scholarship and libraries for good Dorothea Salo School of Library and Information Studies University of Wisconsin–MadisonSo, I’m notorious for changing slides and even talk titles at the last minute. I’ve done it again!
  • DISCLAIMERS: I don’t do open access for a living any more. (that’s okay. I was pretty bad at it.) i’m also not a lawyer.
  • Photo: “Alarm Clock 3” by Alan Cleaver http://www.flickr.com/photos/alancleaver/4293345633/ CC-BY 2.0Frankly, I’m alarmed at what’s going on with copyrightin libraries and education right now, and I want toshare what’s going on, because I don’t want to be theonly one alarmed!
  • biggest threat to libraries? Photo: “$5700” by Andrew Magill http://www.flickr.com/photos/amagill/362201147/ CC-BY 2.0If you ask librarians what’s the biggest threat to libraries rightnow, I suspect a lot of them will talk about money. Budgets beingslashed, branches being closed, money money money. Well, I don’tactually believe that money is the greatest threat to modernlibraries. (CLICK) I think it’s modern COPYRIGHT, and the attitudesheld by many, mostly corporate, copyright owners.Protect IP Act: In current House version, would allow the US todemand that US-based DNS servers and search engines refuse totake browsers to a site deemed by a copyright holder to haveviolated copyright. No judge will be involved in deciding what sitesto censor! Imagine the Author’s Guild effectively wiping HathiTrust off the Internet with a single copyright claim, and you get asense of how bad this bill is.

  • LIBRARY COLLECTIONS TEACHING DIGITIZATION PRESERVATION
  • HarperCollins 26 checkouts
  • interlibrary loan- no ILL across international boundaries sans publisher permission- NO DIGITAL DELIVERY except by publisher. Patrons MUSTretrieve PHYSICAL copy FROM LIBRARY.- library must perform “due diligence” to ensure “private, non-commercial use” (this is not in the law!)- to hell with distance-ed students, field researchers- Smith: “Presumably this is the thin end of a wedge to attack allprivate research use for which permission fees are not paid.  It isimportant to understand that such a standard would give theUnited States the most restrictive copyright law in the world, and itwould do so without the intervention of Congress.”
  • how? S T I F AR LE SNO digital first sale! NO first sale in anything leased instead ofpurchased! And most e-content, e-journals and ebooks alike, isindeed leased!First sale under threat in other ways too...
  • Lending foreign works? V. O C A T G S E O C M O THOUGHT that you only was legal!Costco v. Omega: first sale doesn’t apply if a work is manufacturedand sold abroad, then imported to the US (which libraries do allthe time! it’s the only way to GET a lot of foreign works!)
  • Lending foreign works? . V G Y N LE AE I S W T U R K you only THOUGHT that was legal!Wiley v. Kurtsaeng: first sale doesn’t apply EVEN WHEN work issold in the US with the copyright holder’s consent! Seriously, WTF?Libraries can now be sued for copyright violation for lending bookswe bought fair and square? We now have to track where a bookwas MANUFACTURED in order to sort out whether we can lend it?This is outrageous.Impact on students as well: no reselling of textbooksmanufactured abroad! Aren’t textbooks expensive enough already?
  • the perennialserials crisis 0 % 30 just got real.
  • how? .. ... L. Y E LL L W CA S I S E B A U . A N C A E C .. EB Y . T H
  • could you be prosecuted N O TZ RR AA A S W for breaking a publisher- library contract?Nancy Sims: “In several instances, the criminal charges are basedspecifically on the fact that Swartz violated MIT and JSTOR userpolicies—and in those instances, these charges raise somesignificant issues that the academic library community should beconcerned about.” Even when JSTOR and MIT declined to sue, thefeds prosecuted!What’s the connection to copyright? Come on, do you think thiswould have happened without the overheated rhetoric from the BigMedia lobbies in Washington? I sure don’t.
  • LIBRARY COLLECTIONS TEACHING DIGITIZATION PRESERVATION

  • Electronic theses it’s FUD season!Open Access is “socialized science” per ACS editor-in-chief RudyM. Baum, arguing against the NIH Public Access Policy. Judgingfrom his salary, and the nice little racket he has going where theACS accredits chemistry departments, and makes purchasing itsOWN JOURNALS a condition of accreditation, “socialized science”means “anything that ain’t gonna make Rudy M. Baum money!”Well, um, don’t know about you, but I’m not in academia to makeRudy M. Baum money. In any case, the point is that some scholarlysocieties are using copyright as a weapon against open access inparticular, and scholarship generally. Who can stop them? YOUCAN.
