The advent of the internet has indeed
caused copyright issues to be
re-visited.. Some useful URLs worth
stopping by include:

The Copyright Website
http://www.benedict.com
US Copyright Office
http://lcweb.loc.gov/copyright/

An Article specific to 1997 update to
international copyright and trademark
law governing software is located at:

http://www.softwareprotection.com/body.htm

Another article worth reading is Brad
Templeton's essay, "10 Big Myths about
copyright explained" located at:

http://www.clari.net/brad/copymyths.html

If you scroll to the end of the 10 Big
Myth essay, you'll find links to sites
specific to Australia, Canada, and the
EFF's (Electronic Frontier Foundation)
Law Primer for Multimedia and Web
Developers

Hope these help...

Ella
