Happy Copyright Week!

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is hosting Copyright Week, in collaboration with several other groups interested in intellectual property, including the American Library Association, Association of Research Libraries, WikiMedia, Creative Commons, and more. Each day is dedicated to a different copyright-related issue.

Here's a preview:
  • Day 1: Transparency
  • Day 2: Building and Defending a Robust Public Domain
  • Day 3: Open Access
  • Day 4: You Bought It, You Own It
  • Day 5: Fair Use Rights
  • Day 6: Getting Copyright Right
Copyright affects all of us, and it's not perfect--not by a long shot. If we want copyright to reflect our interests and today's networked reality, we need to get informed and get involved. This is a great first step.
