Editorial on International Copyright Law

From: Jerremie Clyde <jerremiec>
Date: Monday, April 23, 2001
Lesley Ellen Harris' newest editorial is worth taking a look it.  It
does an excellent job of bringing to light the issues facing
libraries, authors, and library patrons regarding the possibility
and desirability of a single international copyright law. Currently,
as directed by the Berne Copyright Convention, copyright law is
applied based on the country in which the material is used.  Lesley
points out the problems this presents in regards to copyright use
and infringement that takes place on the Internet. She also points
out the potential incompatibility of different national approaches
to copyright (citing the United States, France, and Canada).

The new editorial is from Volume 5 (2001), Issue 1 of The Copyright
& New Media Law Newsletter: For Libraries, Archives & Museums.  If
