    Court Rules Search Engine's Display of Copyright Photos Is
    Infringement (Arriba Soft vs. L.Kelly)

    An Internet search engine violated a professional photographer's copyright
    by displaying full-sized images of his work through "inline linking," a
    federal appeals court ruled Wednesday.
    The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that small, low-quality
    thumbnail images were covered by the "fair use" provision of the Copyright
    Act, but reversed a lower court opinion that found the display of larger
    high-quality images also was protected.

    National Information Standards Organization Reports OpenURL Standardization Moving Forward http://library.caltech.edu/openurl

    News here from NISO about progress in establishing the Open URL Standard, which is designed to enable, initially, the transfer of bibliographic material across multiple sources.

    >Date: Mon, 11 Feb 2002 11:27:11 -0500 >From: "Marilyn Geller" <marilyn.geller@mindspring.com> >To: Multiple recipients of list <arl-ejournal@arl.org> > Bethesda, Md., USA - (February 11, 2002) NISO, the National Information Standards Organization, reports that Committee AX, the NISO standards committee that is preparing the OpenURL Standard, met on January 24th and 25th at the CNRI headquarters in Reston, Virginia and continues to make significant progress.

    Eric Van de Velde, the committee chair, summing up progress to date said that existing applications of OpenURL technology only scratch the surface of what else is feasible. Currently, we apply OpenURL technology to bibliographic citations. In the near future, we may apply it to many other types of information: subject headings, legal documents, biological (genome sequences), etc. Currently, we encode OpenURL in an HTTP GET or POST format. In the near future, we may encode OpenURL links in XML. Currently, we think of OpenURL links being provided by specific information providers. In the near future, third parties may provide OpenURL links for any information resource. With these and other opportunities yet to be explored, it is obvious that OpenURL is a technology in its infancy, and we should think of the emerging OpenURL standard as the beginning of a long-term evolutionary process.

    To insure that progress made so far will continue to have value, the committee adopted the OpenURL draft originally submitted to NISO as Version 0.1 of the standard. This document is available as part of the official record on the committee's web site. For complete details and background information, please refer to the OpenURL web site at http://library.caltech.edu/openurl.
