Public Lending Rights

Subject: Public Lending Right, E-books and Electronic Libraries

Please excuse any cross postings

Lesley Ellen Harris' newest editorial is worth taking a look it.  It does
an excellent job of bringing to light the issues facing libraries,
authors, and library patrons regarding public lending right, as it exists
in Canada, United Kingdom, Australia and Germany (or as it doesn't exist
in the United States), and the advent of electronic library collections
and e-books.  She also points out some important issues regarding e-books,
electronic libraries, the ease of pay-per-use and what that does to a
library's traditional role as a lending institution.

The new editorial is from Volume 4, Issue 3 of The Copyright & New Media
Law Newsletter: For Libraries, Archives & Museums. Reading the editorial
is well worth your time and can be found at:


The newsletter is produced by Handshake Productions, edited by Lesley
Ellen Harris, and is meant to keep librarians, archives and museums
abreast of important copyright and licensing issues and news, and it
provides practical solutions to everyday activities.
