Hi Claire,
Thank you for your important post regarding the upcoming ALA OITP Copyright
Advisory Committee program, "Copyright 101: Everything you wanted to know
but were afraid to ask."
It is important and timely and coincides with the release of "The Copyright
Compliance Series," which features attorney Arnold Lutzker, who has worked
closely with ALA and ARL and many others for many years on matters of
copyright. He felt it important I let you and all know that this
comprehensive series is now available and will be an invaluable resource to
all who address the policies, strategies and philosophies of copyright
within their institutions.
Ironically, the first program in the series is appropriately titled,
"Copyright 101: An Introduction to Copyright," and the remaining nine
programs also provide Arnie's expert legal guidance regarding the other key
factors you mentioned.
I'll list the link and titles below; also please note that Arnie and I
agreed upfront that all members of ALA, ARL, CCUMC, VRT and NAMTC will be
offered the maximum discounts when ordering the programs.

The Copyright Compliance Series
1. Copyright 101: An Introduction to Copyright
2. Copyright Works in the Classroom; Copyright FAQs
3. Copyright, Research and Publication; Copyright FAQs

Review link: http://libweb.lib.buffalo.edu/emro/emroDetail.asp?Number=2391

Review: The evolution of computers and digital technology has streamlined
the ability to copy an electronic file. As copying has become more
accessible, ways to prevent copyright infringement have grown in complexity.
The video DMCA and Digital Distance Education (The TEACH Act) is the ninth
in a series of ten entitled the Copyright Compliance Series. This video
features attorney Arnold Lutzker, who specializes in copyright compliance
and, more specifically, the Technology, Education and Copyright
Harmonization Act (TEACH) that was passed in 2002 by Congress. DMCA and
Digital Distance Education is an outstanding video that discusses the
complex nature of copyright and translates it for those engaged in the field
of Distance Education. Explained throughout the video is how educators can
use third party copyrighted materials in school programs that operate on the
Internet. In section one, Mr. Lutzker introduces the TEACH Act and discusses
the basics of copyright. He proceeds to explain what is covered by the
exemption inherent to the TEACH Act. The video creatively expresses the
important position Administrators and Information Technologists have in
regards to the university's position on copyright compliance. In addition,
information is provided as to what Administrators and IT departments should
do to better inform their institution. This video is highly recommended for
its authoritative and invaluable information regarding a very serious and
relevant issue in our information age. After viewing the ninth video in the
series, I have extreme confidence in the other nine films. The makers of
this video are to be congratulated for translating often ambiguous and dense
material (copyright law) into something clear and understandable. This video
is a practical and notable view for anyone who uses or handles copyrighted
materials. Reviewed by David Magolis, Social Sciences Librarian, Bloomsburg

Subject: [Videolib] Copyright strategies for non-text reserve/streaming

Cross-posting; apologies for duplication.

The ALA OITP Copyright Advisory Committee is offering a program,
"Copyright 101: Everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask"
at the upcoming annual conference (see separate message for full
details, or the OITP website:
<http://www.ala.org/ala/washoff/washevents/woannual/oitp.htm#m>).

We are informally gathering information about copyright
policies/strategies/philosophies for non-text digitization in support
of university courses. If your music library, academic technologies,
visual resources, video/film or other non-print media group, or other
units are digitizing images, audio, and/or video, can you please ask
the relevant person to reply directly to me:
claire-stewart@northwestern.edu ?

Institutions need not be identified in the session, this is just to
get a general idea about approaches to fair use, licensing,
permissions requesting, streaming vs. download, etc. Do you digitize
these material? How much, if any, can be digitized without requesting
permission? Are materials retained and reused once digitized? Are
you purchasing special licenses for digitization and streaming? Are
you following copyright guidelines offered by the Music Library
Association, Visual Resources Association, CCUMC, or other group or
organization?

Many thanks.
