To all:

I must recommend an additional resource for information concerning copyright. 

The site is sponsored by the Copyright Management Center at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.  The Copyright Management Center is headed by Professor Kenneth D. Crews, who many of you may have heard speak at one of the dozens of seminars/programs Professor Crews conducts all over the country.  Professor Crews is a lawyer as well as a librarian and so has an insight into how these issues affect librarians.

This site is a wonderful resource for explanations of current and recent legislation, (especially to do with library issues) and without the bias which may be present on sites that are commercial in nature.

The site is well worth bookmarking and visiting often.

Yes, I do work part-time for the Copyright Management Center, but not usually in a PR capacity ;-)    and [unfortunately] I cannot take any of the credit for the website or the information contained therein.  

But I do urge you to visit the site and become as informed as possible on the issues you have all been discussing the past few days.  Relying on information provided by commercial sites that have a vested interest in a share of your budget dollars may not be the best bet.
