It provides a thorough overview of copyright and fair use basics, including a FAQ section, answers about what falls into the public domain, when, why, and how to acquire copyright permission, special considerations for academic and educational use of copyrighted materials, and when to use a release. Resources are provided especially for academic librarians to inform their internal copyright policies. For those interested in the status and development of copyright law, the site links to primary federal and international law, including a thorough list of U.S. copyright cases.
