Georgia Harper presented this in Phil Doty's Information Policy course I took in library school at UT-Austin in 1997. In this updated version she gives one of the best overviews of a topic that continues to baffle even experts in the field. I'd recommend this to any librarian who deals with copyright issues, even tangentally.  I briefly used this in an info literacy class when discussing citations, copyright, fair use, and plagiarism.
