Article: Copyright Clearances, Part 1: Risk Analysis

K. Matthew Dames has started a series in the SESO CopyCense blog called CommuniK.™ The first installment is on copyright clearance (Copyright Clearances, Part 1: Risk Analysis). In intoducing the topic of copyright clearance, Dames says:
This article is the first in a series that reviews several ways information professionals can use protected works freely without getting written permission from the copyright owner, signing a license, or working with a third-party publisher representative such as the Copyright Clearance Center. The goal of the series is to arm information professionals with the tools to help them analyze and properly use what federal law describes as “limitations” on the exclusive rights that copyright owners receive.
As for CommuniK.™ it:
will present articles, essays, editorials...that deal with the intersection of law, business, and technology. The CommuniK.™ series also will be used to present multimedia work, including streaming broadcasts and podcasts.
Sounds like a series worth keeping and eye (or ear) on.
