From School Library Journal:

Hoffman addresses the increased complexity in the law as technology becomes more complicated and appeals to librarians to become advocates for the needs of information users. Following a format similar to Copyright in Cyberspace (Neal-Schuman, 2001), the book is divided into four sections covering copyright fundamentals, applying them in cyberspace, specific library applications as they relate to the increasing types of material that can be copyrighted, and resources. A section titled The dark side of the DMCA points out how the Digital Millennium Copyright Act protects the rights holders to such a degree that it affects librarians who might want to use a digital work during distance-education sessions or lend a copy of one if they circumvent the technology protecting it. The intricacies of file-sharing, browsing and caching, hyperlinks and framing, licensing, and electronic reserves are covered separately, bolstered by court-case examples, notes, and bibliographies. Hoffman discusses the guidelines of personal use in music file-sharing and touches on implications for digital-television videotaping. Her style is more conversational than formal, posing questions as paragraph headings such as, Can't I make use of anything I find on the Web without getting in trouble?! or What does all of this mean for libraries? Specific questions and answers appear in gray inset boxes, along with quotes by Gandhi, Michael Moore, Kirk Douglas, and others, to provide food for thought and inspire library activism. An indispensable reference for all types of libraries.–Vicki Reutter, Cazenovia High School, NY

From Booklist:

Hoffman, a librarian and practicing attorney, wrote the first edition of what became an instant must-read while still in law school. New to the second edition are discussions of "the dark side of the DMCA" (Digital Millennium Copyright Act), file sharing, and writing a copyright policy as well as an expanded licensing section. The volume is divided into four parts. Part 1 considers fundamentals such as the history and purpose of the copyright, and recent legislation. Part 2 examines the application of copyright law in cyberspace. Part 3 focuses on specific library applications, for example, liability for content provided on the Internet, distance education, licensing, and writing a copyright policy. In keeping with Hoffman's activist, get-involved approach, she includes a section on librarians as representatives of library users. Part 4, the "Sourcebox," provides a wide variety of supporting documents and a glossary. Hoffman's book complements Carrie Russell's Complete Copyright (ALA, 2004), Rebecca Butler's Copyright for Teachers and Librarians (Neal-Schuman, 2004), and Carol Simpson's Copyright for Schools (Linworth, 2000).
