Emily Hudson and Andrew Kenyon, both of the University of Melbourne Law School, have published "Copyright and Cultural Institution: Short Guidelines for Digitisation" as the University of Melbourne Legal Studies Research Paper No. 141. Here is the abstract.
Digital technologies are leading to fundamental changes in the ways that copyright works are created, accessed and distributed. These changes are significant for cultural institutions' missions of access, preservation, research and education. Digital technologies also raise many administrative issues, including in relation to copyright. These short guidelines aim to assist understanding and compliance with copyright law within the sector, and supplement the authors' full Guidelines for Digitisation.
