“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” (Carl Rogers)

All you need to know about copyright?

JISC make their ambitious titular claim to publicise three new advice documents on copyright and digital media:

  1. Copyright: An Overview which provides a broad introduction to the subject: What is copyright? How long does it last? What are the exceptions that allow use of copyrighted works?

  2. Audiovisual Copyright: Frequently Asked Questions which answers the most common enquiries we receive through our helpdesk.

  3. Copyright and Still Images: Frequently Asked Questions - these too are based on helpdesk questions.

It does look pretty comprehensive, actually - and JISC have been producing some very high quality resources of late, so I'd be tempted to take the question mark away from the title of this post. For now, at least.
