Chapter 16
Copyright in Cyberspace

Warning and disclaimer

Netiquette rules listed here are suggestions for helping people get along better; they carry no force of law. Explanations of U.S. copyright law in this chapter are a layperson's interpretation and are here for educational purposes only. I am not a lawyer, and nothing in this chapter should be construed as legal advice. Additionally, the interpretation of copyright law changes all the time, so anything in print here may have changed by the time you read it. If you need legal advice, talk to a lawyer!

Some basic information on copyright

This is an extremely basic introduction to the complex subject of copyright. For more detailed information, let me recommend the excellent copyright FAQ by Terry Carroll, available by anonymous FTP from rtfm.mit.edu. (Endnote #37)
