E-books, copyright, and law libraries


As you know, e-books are now all the rage, and as I discussed in my last post, there is lots to love about them. One question you may have, though: What is the connection of e-books to U.S. copyright law? Below are some resources to check out.

U.S. Copyright Office – The best place to start for any sort of copyright law information.

How Does Copyright Law Apply to E-books? – Primer developed by Pennsylvania State University.
