About the Fair Use| U.S. Copyright Office | Librarianship & More | Scoop.it

The Fair Use Index tracks a variety of judicial decisions to help both lawyers and non-lawyers better understand the types of uses courts have previously determined to be fair—or not fair. The decisions span multiple federal jurisdictions, including the U.S. Supreme Court, circuit courts of appeal, and district courts. Please note that while the Index incorporates a broad selection of cases, it does not include all judicial opinions on fair use. The Copyright Office will update and expand the Index periodically.

The practice and 'pathologies' of photocopying

The practice and 'pathologies' of photocopying | Librarianship & More | Scoop.it

Outside of contemporary art practice, the act of photocopying is by-and-large not given much consideration by general users and is only granted limited treatment within discussions of electronic media. This paper seeks to redress this, by speculating on the practice of photocopying and some of the less remarked on behaviours and 'drives' which motivate and structure this practice. It begins by sketching briefly the development of commercial photocopying technologies and some of their artistic uses. Then, drawing on various written accounts and observational research in a large public research library, it explores a number of 'pathologies' or curiosities of behaviour and motivation which attend and characterise the act of photocopying. The paper concludes by suggesting that gaining insight into these patterns and processes can contribute to a richer understanding of the practice of everyday photocopying, as well as human-machine interaction more generally.
