Copyright Report released

The Section 108 Study Group Report has been released and is now available online in PDF. Section 108 of the U.S. copyright law provides limited exceptions to allow copying from materials in libraries and archives.

The Study Group’s mission was:

to conduct a reexamination of the exceptions and limitations applicable to libraries and archives under the Copyright Act, specifically in light of digital technologies. The group will study how section 108 of the Copyright Act may need to be amended to address the relevant issues and concerns of libraries and archives, as well as creators and other copyright holders. The group will provide findings and recommendations on how to revise the copyright law in order to ensure an appropriate balance among the interests of creators and other copyright holders, libraries and archives in a manner that best serves the national interest.”

This Report examines issues related to the current Section 108 and makes recommendations for revisions.
