Rarities and B-Sides...and Copyright, Besides

David Pogue has an interesting opinion piece in the New York Times regarding amateur scanning and archiving of sheet music on the internet...which, naturally, brings up copyright issues. It also touches on whether or not the past generations of information professionals have done as good a job as they should have in preserving non-book materials.


The Pogue piece links to a blog entry by Jason Robert Brown. The Brown piece is a very interesting read and I highly recommend you read it.
