On March 31, the Section 108 Study Group released their report and recommendations, three years in the making. The Study Group was convened to make recommendations to the U.S. Copyright Office. Mostly, the recommendations revolve around a new concept, “publicly disseminated works,” creating a middle ground between the prior concepts of “published” and “unpublished.” In very limited settings, the recommendation is that at-risk works that have been publicly disseminated can be archived by libraries or organizations with comprehensive preservation programs. Other issues, like digital interlibrary loan (ILL), were embraced in principle.
An executive summary is available as well.
