MINERVA Guide to Intellectual Property Rights and Other Legal Issues
Rights issues are prevalent within pretty much anything to do with digital content, from its formation, reproduction, adaptation, negotiation, dissemination and repackaging. In order to limit risks of infringement and take advantage of the benefits that the digital environment presents, it is essential that museums, libraries and archives familiarize themselves with copyright and other issues, as well as train staff in good practice procedures. Minerva publishes the draft of the Guide to Intellectual Property Rights and Other Legal Issues, Version 1.0, edited by Naomi Korn.
