    1. http://librarycopyright.net/resources/fairuse/index.php

      This tool was helpful for further exploration of Fair Use concepts in Unit 2, but felt too subjective for my liking. I prefer this Fair Use Checklist created by Kenneth D. Crews, the author who wrote the book Copyright Law for Librarians and Educators. I reference this book often and like his straightforward “check the box” to visually show whether use is in favor or opposing fair use.

    1. “If Facebook is providing a consumer’s data to be used for the purposes of credit screening by the third party, Facebook would be a credit reporting agency,” Reidenberg explained. “The [FCRA] statute applies when the data ‘is used or expected to be used or collected in whole or in part for the purpose of serving as a factor in establishing the consumer’s eligibility for … credit.'” If Facebook is providing data about you and your friends that eventually ends up in a corporate credit screening operation, “It’s no different from Equifax providing the data to Chase to determine whether or not to issue a credit card to the consumer,” according to Reidenberg.
    2. “It sure smells like the prescreening provisions of the FCRA,” Reidenberg told The Intercept. “From a functional point of view, what they’re doing is filtering Facebook users on creditworthiness criteria and potentially escaping the application of the FCRA.”

    1. The main purpose of the Discovery IN is to provide interfaces and other user-facing services for data discovery across disciplines. We explore new and innovative ways of enabling discovery, including visualizations, recommender systems, semantics, content mining, annotation, and responsible metrics. We apply user involvement and participatory design to increase usability and usefulness of the solutions. We go beyond academia, involving users from all stakeholders of research data. We create FAIR and open infrastructures, following the FAIR principles complemented by the principles of open source, open data, and open content, thus enabling reuse of interfaces and user-facing services and continued innovation. Our main objectives are:
    1. For this factor... It is more likely to be fair use if... It is less likely to be fair use if...

      Pay close attention to the criteria for Fair Use (check out the evaluation tool at the bottom)

    1. There is a serious crisis of discoverability. To overcome it, we have to tear down the walls of dark knowledge and invest in the open discovery infrastructure, esp. user interfaces.

    1. If US legislators and net neutrality advocates really want to protect the rights of internet users, they should call for the removal of barriers to entry for up-and-coming ISP

      Making the internet more fair for all ISP's and allowing for competition for bigger ISP's, plus protecting the rights of the users by allowing them a free/open internet.

    1. A strong version of moral rights even gives the author the right to retract a work from publication and to enjoin any further publication or duplication.

      But not in the scholarly commons, although I think we did recognize that this was a problem. But the persistence requirement of FAIR says they cannot remove all traces of the work.

    1. So a PID is necessary, but not sufficient.

      Note that in the Data Citation Principles, we recommend that the PID resolve to a landing page and not to the data set itself. Need to bring this up with Tim and Martin.

    1. UniProt was one of the case studies presented in the original FAIR publication. What makes UniProt FAIR?

      Good figure to use for FAIR. Now available in Wiki Commons

    1. The FAIR Data Principles were were published in late 2014 and early 2015.
    1. The diffusion and the public endorsement of data FAIRness has been rapid

      Good to see posts on this.

    1. s, and characters from the fictional story world, in ways that powerfully resonate with fans of the series. Participants are mobilized as “Dumbledore’s Army of the real world” in campaigns such as Not In Harry’s Name which pressures Warner Brothers into using Fair Trade chocolate for its Harry Potter Chocolates.

      Fair trade chocolate is a topic that i recently learned about after a long discussion with my sister. It essentially is a Standerd that certifies that the chocolate is not made from plantations that make children and work under unfair conditions and wages.Its amazing how they were able to stand up to cooperates to a issue that most people are not even aware of, Great Work

    1. These rights are quali- fied, however, by the application of various limitations set forth in the next several sections of the Act, §§107 through 122. Those sections, typically entitled “Limitations on exclusive rights,” include, for example, the principle of “fair use” (§107), permission for limited library archival reproduction, (§108), and the doctrine at issue here, the “first sale” doctrine (§109)
      • §107 - the principle of “fair use”
      • §108 - permission for limited library archival reproduction
      • §109 - the “first sale” doctrine
