Librarians, professionals and legal educators are developing new codes of best practice to guide user communities in the use of copyrighted works and digital content. As new best practices become available, they will appear on this page.
Please note: Montclair State University does not endorse any of these best practices, however we wish to bring them to your attention as forward thinking documents applying copyright in educational settings.
The International Communication Association published a Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Scholarly Research in Communication in June 2010 after review by a legal advisory board. Facilitated by Patricia Aufderheide, Center for Social Media, School of Communication, and Peter Jaszi, Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property, Washington College of Law, American University.
ARL Sponsor. Note to UMKC community: The University of Missouri System Legal Counsel does not feel comfrotable with these progressive standards at this time based on current law in our Circuit Court. Relying on the ARL Best Practices may not be legally defensible.
Facilitated by Patricia Aufderheide, director of the Center for Social Media; Katharine Coles, director of the Harriet Monroe Poetry Institute at the Poetry Foundation; Peter Jaszi, Professor of Law in the Washington College of Law at American University; and Jennifer Urban, Professor of Law at the University of California Berkeley.
