Copyright 2010: The Need for Better Negotiability/Usability Principles

Fitzgerald, Brian F. (2008) Copyright 2010: The Need for Better Negotiability/Usability Principles. In Hearn, Greg & Rooney, David (Eds.) Knowledge Policy: Challenges for the 21st Century. Edward Elgar, Cheltenham, UK.


Creative economy guru, John Howkins, has a plan for a project over the next few years culminating in a congressional styled conference in London in 2010. It will celebrate, commiserate and investigate three hundred years of copyright law in England, since the passing of the Statute of Anne in 1709, and most importantly will chart a course for the future. This chapter considers three principles that might be invoked to make copyright material more legally accessible in the digital environment and thereby starts a journey towards Copyright 2010.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
