Of possible interest... ---------- Forwarded message ---------- Copyright windfall in store Publishers and authors could benefit from a leap in copyright revenues under proposals for tighter controls on the photocopying and scanning of books in businesses. Books and journals copied for commercial purposes can currently be exempted from copyright law under a "fair dealing" restriction. But changes to enforce stricter commercial licensing are contained in draft amendments to UK law to accommodate the European Community directive on copyright. The Copyright Licensing Agency, which collects fees for copying on behalf of rightsholders, expects a flood of new licence applications from companies of all sizes if the amendments go through. It predicts a four or five-fold increase in the level of licences in the commercial sector, which already number about 1,200.
