Newsday: Colleges to copyright electronic material

Hofstra University and two other colleges, in negotiations with the Association of American Publishers, agreed to treat electronic educational materials with the same copyright principles applied to printed work, according to the association.

The agreement last week makes Hofstra, Syracuse University and Marquette University among the first schools to establish standards in conjunction with the association for faculty and staff use of digital materials, said Allan Adler, vice president for legal and government affairs for the association.
