  • ¬†Copyright problems: I want to put a PDF of a copyrighted item in my LMS, but there's a long bureaucratic process involved in doing it "by the book" ... so is there a way Bamboo can make it easier to deal with IP issues vis-√†-vis distributing copyrighted material to a group of students? (Ex. 1 scribe notes, 1b-C)
  • Intellectual Property: Faculty and IT/Library have very different ideas of sharing (Ex. 3 scribe notes, 1b-E)
  • JDs need to be hired in Libraries to provide information for faculty. Faculty can be educated on how to protect their IP and re-negotiate the contracts with publishers. (Ex. 4 scribe notes, 1b-E)
  • Libraries are also creating new works. Indexing, curating, metadata etc. Are all intellectual work going into that process.
    • Libraries should push the fair use envelope.
    • Some publishers allow self-publishing on faculty's own site. (Ex. 4 scribe notes, 1b-E)
  • Intellectual Property often stymies original work - in digital formats. What's going to happen when university scholars start putting up edgy stuff and a cease and desist letters. Will the uni. stand behind them?
    • Bamboo will have 3 problems: Using copyrighted work, creating new work from copyrighted works, policing copyright itself.
    • Faculty want to know how much risk they can take?
    • A License which would be used for making scholarship. (Ex. 4 scribe notes, 1b-E)
  • Scholarly publication in the Libraries was there to protect the scholar. There is a tension between the University and the Scholar and their rights. (Ex. 4 scribe notes, 1b-E)
  • We need a more comprehensive policy in IP. Protecting copyrights is destroying. Who owns the online courses? (Ex. 4 scribe notes, 1b-E)
  • Clearance of intellectual property rights.
    • Usually an issue with images of any kind.
    • Some sort of model licenses, and ways of facilitating this process.
    • Obtaining access to an archive is a specific and older flavor of the same thing.
    • Can gain access to archive, but what are rights with the resources.
    • Rare that scholarship is stopped by rights issues. (Ex. 4 scribe notes, 1c-B)
  • Exercise the fair-use muscle (Ex. 5 scribe notes, 1b-C)
  • Quick and easy access to copyrighted material w/o worrying about IP. Quick and easy digitization of texts. So that we can offer a glossed texts. (Ex. 6b scribe notes, 1b-D)
  • Exceptions for copyright for scholars
    • We are not hindered constantly by fair use
    • Broadly conceived in all media. (Ex. 6b, 1c-A)
