Example text

As the Tasini decision and the BMG Canada Inc. v. John Doe12 judgment have proven, courts can interpret copyright legislation literally and do not necessarily presuppose that rules applied to print materials are transferable to digital ones. Once again, licenses can create an environment wherein publishers, copyright holders, and libraries can bring some stability to this world that sometimes seems to have more exceptions than absolute rules. OPEN ACCESS As a response to high costs, restrictive licenses, and concerns about accessibility to publicly funded research, we have seen the development of open access journals.

This expansion has developed over time to include not only definitions of copyright ownership for recorded, visual, and digital media, but also who can use these media and under what conditions. Furthermore, as photocopiers, recorders of various types, and computers became common and made it easier to duplicate materials, copyright legislation worldwide also grew to encompass not only fair use and terms of protection, but also appropriate use of copying technology. It is this combination of legislative factors (ownership of copyright, terms of protection, fair and appropriate use, and controls on copying technologies) and how they are (or can be) applied in any one situation that ultimately leads to the confusion that many librarians feel when faced with a question of copyright.

Perhaps, the most compelling concern is that OA publications do not carry the prestige of traditional journals. Authors seek to publish not for direct financial rewards but for the rewards that are a by-product of establishing a reputation in their field of study. The most tangible examples of this are promotion and tenure. In this context, the prestige of the publication carries a lot of weight. 13 However, as OA publications mature and gain more prominence, their reputations are bound to improve.
