This book contains valid, real-world copyright questions posed by real-life educators—all answered by a knowledgeable and experienced school attorney.
Poor economic conditions have driven publishers to be more aggressive with pursuing improper use of their copyrighted materials. At the same time, new technologies are complicating old copyright understandings. K-12 educators must have a firm grasp on copyright in order to confidently apply copyright rules to modern learning modalities.
For close to a decade, author Carol Simpson fielded and answered inquiries for the "Copyright Questions of the Month" column for Library Media Connection. The questions and answers of this book are gleaned from the myriad copyright questions submitted to her by actual educators in the field, addressing the unique copyright issues in schools.
The information in Copyright Catechism II: Practical Answers to Everyday School Dilemmas will be invaluable to K-12 educators of all types, but especially librarians, technology specialists, and school administrators without time to study copyright law in-depth. The topics covered represent the complex and potentially confusing issues that active K-12 educators encounter in their daily work.
