  Article:   COPYRIGHT ISSUES IN DIGITAL PUBLISHING.

Authors:  KENT R. MIDDLETON.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  Development of the World Wide Web offers every user the opportunity to become a publisher, and turns every computer into a library, a store, a CD player or videocassette recorder. But, as computer bits and bytes allow writers and publishers to be more creative and flexible, digitization makes it more difficult to protect creative expression through copyright. Digitization creates new issues, including when electronic transmissions are copies, how electronic databases are to be protected, the rights of publishers to sell electronic versions of printed works, and copyright in web pages. In 1998, Congress passed legislation ratifying an international copyright treaty and protecting online services providers from liability for certain copyright infringements on their digital networks. Congress was also expected to continue consideration of legislation to protect information in databases.
