Document Delivery and Copyright in a University Environment.pdf Public

An analysis of three challenges for university presses posed by changes in document delivery in the academic environment: the expansion of the interlibrary loan system; the proliferation of electronic databases; and the growth of the "take-back-our-copyrights" movement among faculty aided and abetted by campus librarians. The relevance of three important court cases is noted in the light of these changes: Texaco (1992); Feist (1991); and Community for Creative Non-Violence (1989). This was given as a talk at a workshop on "Document Delivery: Threat or Opportunity?" sponsored by the Association of American Publishers.
