- Wikipedia entry on Bridgeman Art Library vs. Corel Corp.
- Fair Use in Online Video
- Digital Copyright Slider (pretty great rule-of-thumb gauge for whether something US-created is under copyright)
- Licensing Open Data: a Practical Guide (UK-based, so make allowances, but also a lot of solid common sense applicable internationally.)
- Data (and the Creative Commons) Makes the point that you can't CC-license something that isn't copyright-eligible to begin with.
- ARL Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries (Many of these are applicable to likely DH projects; they may also be a starting point for a similar code by and for DH.)
Good people to follow on copyright issues (plug them into your search engine of choice): Nancy Sims, James Grimmelmann (especially for Google Books/Hathi Trust), Peter Hirtle, Kevin Smith (at Duke), Pamela Samuelson.
Dorothea's Infallible Method for Knowing For Sure That a Use is Fair
- Copy a copyrighted work.
- Get sued by a legitimate owner of copyright in the work.
- Assert fair use as your defense in court.
- Win the case.
