New Issue Brief From ARL and Ithaka S+R : “Copyright and Streaming Audiovisual Content in the US Context”
Today the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and Ithaka S+R released Copyright and Streaming Audiovisual Content in the US Context, by Danielle Cooper and Katherine Klosek.
The paper summarizes the experiences of 12 academic libraries in accessing streaming media for teaching, learning, and research purposes, including discussion of the barriers to access and use imposed by certain license terms. The 12 libraries are participants in a larger research project in which Ithaka S+R is exploring how to make streaming media sustainable for academic libraries.
Copyright and Streaming Audiovisual Content in the US Context is part of KnowYourCopyrights.org, an ARL project supporting library leaders in asserting library rights to support access to and creation of knowledge, and not ceding rights due to restrictive license terms, shifts in technology and business models, or outdated practices rooted in risk aversion. The paper includes an overview of the legal landscape, including rights and exceptions in the US Copyright Act; exemptions for educational uses issued through the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) rulemaking process; and considerations for licensing copyrighted content.
