Professor Caroline Osborne Publishes New Article in SMU Science & Technology Law Review

West Virginia College of Law Professor Caroline Osborne recently published a new article in the SMU Science and Technology Law Review. The article is titled "Copyright, Pandemics, and Emergencies: When Desparate Times Dictate Contextual Responses" and appears in volume 24, issue 2 of the journal.

From the abstract:

This article explores fair use, the library exception, the first sale doctrine, and controlled digital lending as responses to copyright in the context of permitting libraries to digitize materials existing exclusively in print in their collection for use in teaching, research, and scholarship by students, faculty, and other patrons. Also included is a decision matrix to be employed as a tool for analysis in making the decisions as to digitization of print resources in response to instances of emergencies.
