Zwolle's contribution to good copyright relationships

Author:

FREDERICK J FRIEND

Abstract

A group of academic authors, publishers and copyright experts has been developing toolkits and documents which identify good practice in copyright management in the relationships between stakeholders in academic copyright. The group is known as the 'Zwolle Group' after the Netherlands town that hosted the three copyright conferences organized by the SURF Foundation and by the UK Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC). The Group developed seven 'Principles' aimed at 'balancing stakeholder interests in scholarship-friendly copyright practices' and is currently working on three documents intended to assist stakeholders in applying the Principles in practice. The aim is not to lobby stakeholders to adopt particular forms of copyright policies and agreements but to improve copyright management and copyright relationships by making available examples of good practice.
