Public lands, unownable ideas, markets for eggs and surrogates, slaves in court, ... More

Public lands, unownable ideas, markets for eggs and surrogates, slaves in court, the economics of sharing . . . . These were some of the issues discussed at this Duke Law School event. The workshop was prompted by the publication of James Boyle’s book, The Public Domain: Enclosing the Commons of the Mind (Yale University Press 2008), but its topic was also a wider one. The workshop does not claim some essential common thread links each of these inquiries together. Instead, it offered essayistic contributions from a distinguished and diverse group of panelists and commentators each of whom has, in their own way, explored the margins, the edges, and the opposites of property. Do those different investigations shed light on each other? View the workshop seesions to find out. Less

"A group of professors and graduate students from around the world has started a new university of their own online, with an unusual model that is more like a book group than a traditional course," reports the Chronicle of Higher Education. "The new institution, called Peer2Peer University (for peer to peer), was announced last year and was originally slated to start offering courses in January. But logistical issues forced the fledgling project to delay its official opening until last week." Less

This guide provides a primer on copyright and use permissions. It is intended to support teachers, librarians, curriculum experts and others in identifying the terms of use for digital resources, so that the resources may be appropriately (and legally) used as part of lessons and instruction. The guide also helps educators and curriculum experts in approaching the task of securing permission to use copyrighted materials in their classrooms, collections, libraries or elsewhere in new ways and with fewer restrictions than fair use potentially offers. The guide was created as part of ISKME's Primary Source Project, and is the result of collaboration with copyright holders, intellectual property experts, and educators. Less

As today's tech-savvy teens become increasingly involved with technology and the Internet for learning, work, civic engagement, and entertainment, it is vital to ensure that they understand their legal rights and responsibilities under copyright law and also how the law affects creativity and innovation. This curriculum is designed to give teachers a comprehensive set of tools to educate students about copyright while incorporating activities that exercise a variety of learning skills. Lesson topics include: the history of copyright law; the relationship between copyright and innovation; fair use and its relationship to remix culture; peer-to-peer file sharing; and the interests of the stakeholders that ultimately affect how copyright is interpreted by copyright owners, consumers, courts, lawmakers, and technology innovators. The lesson plan concludes with a mock trial that tests the students' understanding of copyright and its limitations and encourages them to consider the positions of each party involved. Less
