RE: What does Tasini mean for us librarians?

The statement about newspapers holding copyright for articles written by
their employees is correct, but having been a reporter, I can tell you
that newspapers also buy articles from freelancers frequently and
copyright would be blurred in those instances. That would also be true
with photographs and other "art" purchased from freelancers.

"Freelance" material is most frequently found in "magazine,"  sports and
other special sections.
