The Public Domain, Digitization, and Copyright

A little debate in the LibraryLawBlog

Quote from Peter Hirtle’s statement:
In short, while many libraries may have in the pre-Bridgeman past claimed copyright in digital scans, and while many might still wish to be able to do so, I believe that most libraries and archives are moving away from copyright claims and instead asserting contractual claims based on their physical ownership of an image. Whether this is a good thing or not is something that I tried to address in the essay I cited at the beginning of this too-long message.
