Copyright Doesn't Just Grant The Content Creator Rights
from the others-have-rights-as-well dept
Whenever copyright system supporters create "copyright guides," they seem to conveniently leave out the part that protects consumers rights as well. The worst cases are when the entertainment industry creates materials for schools to use to teach children about copyright, as they're almost always heavily misleading. But, sometimes everyday "guides" to things like copyright can be misleading as well. That's why it's good to see the folks at the Copyright Advisory Network fixing up and correcting a Reader's Guide to Copyright, that seemed to only focus on the rights of the content creator -- leaving out important rights of others, such as fair use and first sale rights.
