Copyright: The Glue of the System Copyright has become a battleground. Librarians and publishers are the two ends of the scholarly communication chain. Many librarians see copyright as the element that will provide the way out of their budget problems. Many publishers see it as essential to maintaining sales of their publications. Neither side is without its bias, and very little in the way of compromise has been offered. As a non-lawyer, it is impossible for me to comment on the legal technicalities of copyright law. Fisher discusses the practicalities of current copyright policies and hypothesizes how the system might change if the new policies being discussed now became reality. The changes being proposed are intended to shift control of dissemination of published materials from publishers to either authors or their universities. She assumes that the result would be an improvement. However, without the basic assurances that copyright gives the ability of the research community to determine value would disintegrate and research output would be harmed.
