If you've been looking for a thorough but easy-to-figure-out handbook on copyright law and how to do your job and stay legal, you may hereby shout, "Eureka!" Butler has succeeded in classifying, clarifying, and demystifying every conceivable type of situation you might find yourself in and then provides answers, in simple flow-chart form, for handling them. The five chapters in Part I are thorough reviews of copyright law, the concept of fair use, determining what is in public domain, how to obtain permissions, and other general guidelines on such topics as licensing, loaning, penalties, plagiarism, and exemptions. The bulk of the book is in Part II, which deals with specific applications, such as Internet and public access, videos and DVDs, television, software, music, multimedia, distance learning and–oh, yes!–print! Each chapter follows the same format (including end notes and references), providing clarity and ease of access, and more than 60 flow charts provide pathways to follow in various situations. In the unlikely event your situation is missed, you'll find out how to find it on any of the Internet sites provided for further research. An indispensable addition.–Mary R. Hofmann, Rivera Middle School, Merced, CA

Although the title seems to limit the audience, this handbook is aimed at the general K-12 audience, including students. The first few chapters examine essential concepts, including copyright law, fair use, public domain, obtaining permission, and other issues such as interlibrary loan and photocopying. The next chapters focus on specific applications of the law relating to the Internet, music, multimedia, and distance learning, to name a few. The final chapter attempts to identify the meaning of copyright for the K-12 audience. Key sections of the law are reproduced in appendixes. Butler makes excellent use of flowcharts and uses an informal writing style. There are many grey areas regarding copyright, and no book can clarify them all, but among its other uses, this guide would be a good starting point for discussions with legal counsel.
