Sound Savings: Preserving Audio Collections

Edited by Judith Matz • 2004 • ISBN 1-59407-663-4 • 158pp.

In July 2003, many of the key stakeholders in audiovisual preservation met at the University of Texas at Austin to share their experiences and discuss the challenges ahead, specifically in the area of preserving sound recordings. The program featured talks by experts on topics ranging from assessing the preservation needs of audio collections to creating, preserving, and making publicly available digitally reformatted audio recordings. Conference attendees--critical stakeholders of the future of audio preservation--articulated seven areas for future action to move the field effectively forward. In this publication, ARL presents the symposium papers and these recommendations for future action.

A New Day for the DMCA: The Chamberlain and Lexmark Decisions

Recent circuit-level decisions in Chamberlain v. Skylink and Lexmark v. Static Control Components interpreted the Digital Millenium Copyright Act in a manner that will prevent its use to restrict legitimate competition in after-market components. By placing on plaintiffs the burden of proving intent to infringe copyright, judges on both panels not only dictate the correct outcome in these cases, but also provided defendants in other cases a way to short-circuit litigation when infringement is nowhere to be seen. Published in Electronic & Commerce Law Vol. 9 No. 45 (November 2004).
