@ehasbrouck didnt mean to imply that it was. just that attribution right would be good for creators, & that was one of few times raised.
#Sec108 Ivy Anderson @ CDL: Less fear-mongering on hacking would be good; we have a thriving market despite its existence. (me: yes!)
@ehasbrouck yes, & really difficult to tell if authors are in fact gaining commercially from tipjars, ad-page revenues, licensing deals.
#Sec108 very interesting discussions on commerciality / commercial availability for preservation.
#Sec108 Howard Besser: HathiTrust is exactly an example of national coordination for preservation. Unsaid: … and Authors Guild sued them.
#Sec108 Howard Besser: Doing digital preservation for 20 years. Nobody does it lightly. Digital preservation != “digital risk” for fun.
#Sec108 Howard Besser: 1980s videotapes commercially distributed - 10% are now out of print & completely unavailable.
#Sec108 Howard Besser: “on premises” is 20th century idea. pubrs go with user-community for high-value info; why premises for other content.
@SUCopyright bodes ill for me trudging around with my suitcases on the streets of NYC …
#Sec108 Rasenberger generously conceding that films in Culpepper should be preserved. Perhaps even digitally!
#Sec108 Yes, rightsholder interests are not monolithic. And yes, metadata (and SEARCH) are important.
#Sec108 Yes. Rightsholder communities are not monolithic.
#Sec108 thank you crews & maher: CCC, Authors Guild, etc., represent individual sets of (c) holders. Libraries have to deal with ALL works.
#Sec108 Crews: part of the problem is the automatic no-formalities copyright.
@SUCopyright weak laughter.
@ARLpolicy so obviously true, because in those countries w/out libraries books sell so much better!
#Sec108 Very little discussion today of the non-commercially copyrighted works that are the vast, vast majority of today’s copyrighted works
@ARLpolicy It’s like they want to push 107 and 108 to the farthest boundaries!
@ehasbrouck Are they supernatural? A lot of scholarship & writer how-to books pretty widely available. So why/how unknown/non-obvious?
#Sec108 Do they really not get preservation? Redundancy is a tenet of preservation.
#Sec108 Harbeson: Let libraries do the preservation. Preserve everything with abandon. Legislate access.
