De-mystifies the complicated law of copyright and related rights. The author provides commonsense, practical guidance on respecting and keeping on the right side of the copyright law in your library or information service. The recent changes emanating from the EU Copyright Directive are covered extensively together with in-depth chapters on compliance with the new rules. Although this is a one-size-fits-all guide, sectoral differences are highlighted and discussed. As well as being an indispensable guide for library and information staff, the guide is also essential for researchers, academics, teachers, reprographics staff and technicians - and,indeed, for anyone who uses, or wants to learn about using, copyright material.
'It is clear from reading the book that the author has spent a considerable amount of time researching and understanding copyright law, while at the same time writing in a non-legalese style.' [Information World Review] Norman's book, chatty in style, makes a good read and can be recommended to anyone wanting a general introduction to UK copyright law.' [Journal of Documentation] 'The book is well laid out, and I think the author has excelled in bringing together issues relevant to such a disparate profession.' [Legal Information Management] 'This book is likely to be a regularly consulted reference volume for library workers, information managers and anyone who manages the use of copyright material and needs an accessible introduction to copyright law.' [Freepint] 'This book is a summation of Norman's considerable knowledge and experience in an easily digestable format, and along with Cornish and Padfield, is a 'must have' purchase for your shelves.'
