Will the WorldCat Copyright Evidence Registry Work?
OCLC launched the Copyright Evidence Registry six-month pilot program on July 1 to test the concept and functionality. Users can search the Copyright Evidence Registry to find information about a book, learn what others have said about its copyright status, and share what they know. During a later stage of the pilot, OCLC will add a feature enabling pilot libraries to create and run automated copyright rules conforming to standards they define for determining copyright status. The rules will help libraries analyze the information available in the Copyright Evidence Registry and form their own conclusions about copyright status. In Keeping Rights Registries Open, Peter Brantley reviews issues involving OCLC's pilot program. [JH]
