Re: Librarians Acting as Copyright Managers

At those universities that have university presses, the staff of these presses should be another local resource to tap about advice on copyright issues. Generally speaking, because they need to know a lot about copyright law to conduct their own businesses, press staff often are more expert on these issues than university counsel or the staff at the university's intellectual property office, which mostly concentrates on patent law rather than copyright.

How many librarians have not dealt with a copyright issue?  I am
posting an article on the role of librarians vis-a-vis copyright
law, on behalf of Lesley Ellen Harris (http://copyrightlaws.com).
