Subject: Copyright and Humanities Report from British Academy
Date: Tue, 19 Sep 2006 15:15:16 -0400

The British Academy  has just issued a report discussing problems that copyright is raising in humanities and social science research. There's a press release here

and the full report can be downloaded from this page

While the details of copyright vary between the United States and the United Kingdom in important particulars (notably the US fair use provisions, which I believe are comparatively stronger and more wide reaching than UK fair dealing), this report will be of interest to some CNI-announce readers, particularly in conjunction with the recent ACLS Commission report on Cyberinfrastructure and the Humanities.

(Thanks to Peter Suber's always-invaluable Open Access News Blog

for the initial pointer on this.)
