This site is exactly what the doctor ordered. If I had a dollar for every person who asked me about teacher copyright issues during my workshops, I'd have at least a few hundred bucks!

Technical Remarks:

Love the blog interactivity!
Time spent reviewing site: 2-3 hours.

This site can be useful to those who need a starting place to research copyright and fair use law. A primary goal of the site seems to be marketing a book on the subject and it appears to be a good resource. Some information on the topic is available but a user would have to buy the book or use other resources to get enough information to guide decisions and actions. Information on this topic is badly needed and this is the only entry that I know of on the MERLOT site.

Technical Remarks:

The blog is easy to read and provides links for comments and other tools. Navigation of the site is intuitive and clear.
