LCA Submits Statement to House Judiciary Committee for Hearing on Copyright, Education, and Visually Impaired People

On November 18, 2014, the Library Copyright Alliance (LCA) submitted a statement to the House Judicary Committee for Hearing on Copyright, Education, and Visually Impaired People discussing the exceptions to the Copyright Act that enable libraries to support educational institutions, including sections 110(1), 110(2), and 107, that revision of these provisions is unnecessary, in part because of the emergence of open educational resources, and addresses the provisions of the Act that allow libraries to provide accessible format copies to the print disabled, including print disabled students: the Chafee Amendment (section 121) and the fair use doctrine.
