The ALA Committee on Professional Ethics (COPE) is developing a "proposed interpretation of the ALA Code of Ethics on the topic of copyright." This interpretation will be considered by the Council at the 2014 ALA Annual Conference in June. The proposed interpretation is now open for comments on the ALA Connect web site. Please take a moment to read it and leave comments on that site to note anything that you believe needs clarification. It is also important for you to speak up, if you disagree with any part of the text.
As library and information professionals, we frequently turn to ALA for its guidance. Therefore, it is important that we all review this draft, since it is likely we'll be using it in the future.
