An updated edition of the standard, comprehensive guide to copyright issues affecting schools, this book provides the watertight copyright policy and plan that's a must for every school district. Copyright continues to be a timely topic as technology makes determining who owns what more and more complex. Written by the leading copyright authority for libraries, Copyright for Schools: A Practical Guide, Fifth Edition is a thoroughly updated version of the industry standard on copyright matters affecting schools. Starting with an overview of copyright law, the book goes on to cover specific topics medium by medium, including print, software, music, video, multimedia, and more. It addresses new technologies in common use in schools and school libraries and also includes new cases and interpretations, statutory citations, guidance on best practices, and real life questions and answers to typical copyright dilemmas faced by schools. On the theory that preventing legal action is always simpler than defending it, the advice throughout is designed to enable schools to take advantage of their rights under copyright law, while avoiding the "bleeding edge" that may make them targets for copyright owners. * Sample logs, record-keeping aids, notices, policies, request letters, forms, and instructional materials * Questions and answers on representative school situations involving copyright, including hot topics like video yearbooks, wikis, and distance learning * A reproducible copyright brochure suitable for school staff * Examples of fair-use analysis * Lists of copyright-cleared media and producers * A comprehensive bibliography, including Internet links related to copyright… (more)

This is an excellent resource and will help school library media specialists explain copyright to teachers and administrators. My only quibble is that copyright issues regarding the internet continue to change rapidly with no ultimate, clearly defined guidelines, so this book (as comprehensive as it is) will never be fully up-to-date.

This contains vital instruction on how to navigate the labyrinth of U.S. Copyright law but let's be real - the likelihood that I'm actually going to be able to sit down and find the time to read this is slipping down to nil so I'm just going to mark it read. However, I think I will find it greatly useful as a reference guide. ( )

There are a number of copyright books dealing wioth educational issues, but we don’t know of any more authoritive than lawyer/teacher librarian/educator Carol Simpson. Ov the years, Simpson has done the best job of understainding both the legal and the educational issues and how to interpret them in a school and school learning commons/library. The issues covered in this volume begin with the copyright law itself and then cover what’s in the public domain, what are licensing agreements, fair use, print materials, audiovisual and multimedia materials, music, distance learning, Internet issues, and computer software. She then turns to practical applications in school learning commons/libraries, getting permissions, managing copyright, copying, administrators, and contains a number of usful forms in the appendicies. Simpson has kept this guide up to date over the years, so, in our opinion, it is the best purchase among the crop of publications. Highly recommended.
