How to Fill a Repository:
- Faculty grant non-exclusive rights to repository for all future scholarly article
- § 205(e) - Nonexclusive licenses as written agreement
- Shifts the default; doesn’t force faculty.
- Experimenting with different strategies to get faculty involved
Very short set of comments and opened to questions:
- Would receiving a DMCA takedown notice be embarrassing?
- Developing a “SHERPA/RoMEO" for law journals?
- There is a wiki — did not catch the name. [Help commenters?]
- Content license:
- Does § 108 first-sale apply? No way.
- Panelists seem to be highly NON risk-averse about the distribution of U.S. law review publications.
- No such cavalier attitude about professional publishing society.
