Public Knowledge has useful excerpts from last week’s Copyright Reform Hearing in Congress

Sherwin Sly, over at Public Knowledge, distills the testimony from last week’s Congressional hearing on copyright reform here. Personal note – it could be devastating for libraries if the library copyright provision is repealed. Libraries rely both on the specific exception (Sect. 108) and the general contours of Fair Use.  The specific exception allows some measure of certainty under limited conditions.
