What is Copyright Notice?

Notice, as it pertains to copyrights in the United States, entails placing the symbol © (or the word “Copyright, ” or the abbreviation “Copr.”), the year of first publication, and the name of the copyright owner, whether it be the original author or one to whom the copyright has been assigned. The work must be an original work of authorship which is fixed in a tangible medium of expression. In other words, the authored work must be in tangible form. One cannot copyright an idea, a thought, or other intangible thing.

Copyright Law in the United States: Then

Effective January 1, 1978, the 1976 Copyright Act, codified as Title 17 of the United States Code, required all copyrighted works to provide notice of that copyright. Prior to the enactment of the 1976 Copyright Act, works published under the copyright owner’s authority without proper copyright notice resulted in the loss of copyright protection in the U.S. Later, the 1988 Berne Convention Implementation Act amended the 1976 Copyright Act to make copyright notice optional for works published on or after March 1, 1989.

Interview with Chomsky from India

Chomsky In First Person
In this exclusive interview, Noam Chomsky speaks to V.K. Ramachandran about the 'new war against terrorism', imperialism, the media and the role of intellectuals.
November 15, 2001: there is a break in the North East monsoon, and it is a clear, cool day in Thekkady. Noam Chomsky is on the second day of his first holiday in many years, a five-day break from pu...tle illegitimate authority and expand the domains of freedom and justice? The task, then, is not to 'speak truth' to the king, or even to the king's subjects, but to learn from them, to contribute what we can, and to participate with them in common struggle for values we discover and uphold. It seems to me that those are the directions in which responsibilities of intellectuals should be sought.
