Subject: FYI:Supreme Court Rules on Tasini vs. New York Times


In a ruling that is likely to have a major impact on authors, publishers,
and
secondary database producers, the Supreme Court has ruled on the case of
Tasini vs. New York Times.
http://www.cnn.com/2001/LAW/06/25/scotus.copyright.ap/index.html

>From the CNN article:

 "The court ruled 7-2 that compilation in an electronic
database is different from other kinds of archival or library storage of
material that once appeared in print. That means that copyright laws require
big media companies such as The New York Times to get free-lancers'
permission before posting their work online."

The decision itself is likely to be available online soon.  While the
article
signals out big media companies and free lancers, this is expected to have
an
impact on author/publisher relations in general.  It should be noted that
many publishers have already gone to so called "Martian" permissions where
they ask for copyright transfer everywhere, anytime, and in any media.  It
isn't clear what the impact might be on permissions done under the old
regime
before permission and copyright transfer agreements included electronic
versions.  Some anticipate that rather than try to get permissions from
authors of old material, publishers may just remove that material from
electronic databases.
