Copyright on the Internet


Anonymous Patron writes "Thomas G. Field, Jr., Professor of Law, has put together a good page that covers Copyright on the Internet. This discussion addresses U.S. copyright issues of concern to those who post to or own email lists or host web pages. It also deals with situations where someone might want to forward or archive another's email posting or to copy material from another's web page."


I found this article fairly easy to read and understand. I am digitizing some government documents (at a depository library), so I'm not confused there...but, I was a little confused about the issues surrounding links on a personal website. After reading this article I'm less confused about what is 'ethical' and what is not concerning copyright and the internet.
