Works Created Under Federal Contracts: Copyright and Digital Preservation

by Laster, Sharalyn J

Abstract (Summary)
This work surveys the current Federal Depository Library Program treatment of government information in digital formats, and the current state of copyright law as it pertains to digital access and preservation projects, in order to demonstrate potential problems with works created with federal funding that are not considered works for hire and therefore do not fall under the general exemption from copyright protection as enacted in Title 17, Section 105 of the U.S. Code.
