Copyright and educational use

Writing about web page http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=923465

Excellent paper on the minefield of copyright in the educational context. The paper identifies four obstacles as particularly serious ones:

  • Unclear or inadequate copyright law relating to crucial provisions such as fair use and educational use;
  • Extensive adoption of digital rights management technology to lock up content;
  • Practical difficulties obtaining rights to use content when licenses are necessary;
  • Undue caution by gatekeepers such as publishers or educational administrators.
