restricted access The Scholarly Publishing Community Should Support Changes to US Copyright Law
Abstract

Abstract:

US copyright law protects authors and publishers. The law has not been updated in decades despite dramatic changes in the production and distribution of printed and digital scholarly books and articles.

This paper provides some recommendations in response to these questions.
