The “Not” Fair Copyright in Research Works Act

February 13, 2009 at 1:28 am Leave a comment

Hello.  John Conyers re-introduced H.R. 801 – The Fair Copyright in Research Works Act.   Please…do we need to have this discussion again?   The Alliance for Taxpaer Access has a great summary on their site.   I said in my previous post that Paul Courant’s blog entry on this topic is a good read, and it is. 

For all of you who believe you have the right to the information that your tax dollars are paying for, please write to your representative…I’m talking to you NLPers out there too.   I’ve written to my representative (again…although a different one this go-around).

I can’t believe we’ve had to revisit this topic.  Come on already.  Life’s too short.
