Section 108 Study Group Report

Section 108 Study Group Report

The Section 108 study group has released its report to the Librarian of Congress recommending changes to section 108 of the Copyright Act.

Section 108 “permits libraries and archives to make certain uses of copyrighted materials in order to serve the public and ensure the availability of works over time.” The Section 108 study group was “convened under the auspices of the Library of Congress to look at specific changes that might be needed in the copyright law to balance the positions of rights holders and cultural memory organizations such as libraries and archives in the digital world.” See the report, executive summary and press release for more information.
