Comments for This and THATCamp Sussex Humanities Lab 2017 4-5 July 2017 Fri, 28 Jul 2017 07:52:36 +0000 hourly 1 Comment on This and THATCamp Sussex Humanities Lab: debrief by Mr Copyright and Licensing Fri, 28 Jul 2017 07:52:36 +0000 In terms of the sharing – there are two possibilities – the quotation exception as well as when what is shared has no copyright in it as is stated above.

If you look at the wording of s.29A it does not preclude – for example a librarian – making a derived copy for analytics purposes and multiple university employees, students etc using it for different purposes.

Comment on Talk. Social network data: What can I do with it ? by Geraldine Thu, 22 Jun 2017 07:44:40 +0000 Thanks Karen ! Yes, I think there’s really something here. Who hasn’t made photocopies of various documents in libraries in the past to work on them ? We all knew there were probably copyright issues involved somewhere but librarians were ok with it, so were journals if articles were written based on this material. Yet with digital data, this seems far less straightforward. We could share ideas about why we think this might be the case ?

Comment on Talk. Social network data: What can I do with it ? by Karen Watson Wed, 21 Jun 2017 12:42:14 +0000 This is interesting. I heard the researcher who recently discovered new work by Sylvia Plath ( talking on Radio 4 about sitting in the reading room in the Archive, taking pictures of the documents and using Whatapp to send them to her research partner and they worked on the document together in real time. She said it was like having him in the room. I’m not sure that’s allowed under copyright as I’m pretty sure the deal would have been to take images for private research only – not sharing /making another copy. And does whatapp own that copy? And clearly no one thinks it’s a problem or it wouldn’t have been talked about on Radio 4 in passing.
