Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
With the selection of Representative Paul Ryan as his running mate, the presumed Republican nominee Mitt Romney made federal spending—including on higher education—a major flash point of the coming presidential campaign. Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican and chair of the House Budget Committee, is best known as the architect of a House of Representatives budget plan to slash discretionary spending, including federal research funding, student loans, and the Pell Grant program, over the next decade.

Don't Confuse Technology with College Teaching
Chronicle of Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
This spring, Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology announced a $60 million venture to offer free classes online. Just last month the University of California in Berkeley said it would also join the effort. John Hennessy, president of Stanford, recently predicted that a technology "tsunami" is about to hit higher education. When justifying their decision to remove Teresa Sullivan as president of the University of Virginia, the board of visitors cited, in part, the need to ride this wave. As we think about the future of education, we need to sharpen our understanding of what education is and what educators do. More

Judge Rules in Favor of Georgia State University in Copyright Case
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A United States District Court judge slapped down three scholarly publishers as they tried to salvage spoils from the wreckage of a four-year copyright lawsuit against Georgia State University. Judge Orinda Evans, who in May ruled for the university in all but five of ninety-nine alleged violations resulting from its library electronic reserve policies, rejected a proposed injunction that would have imposed exacting guidelines on professors who wish to make portions of certain copyrighted course readings for free.

Authors Guild Seeks $2 Billion from Google for Book Scanning
Wired    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Google made a deal in 2004 with several universities to scan their libraries, without the rights holders' permission, and make "snippets" of those books available online via its search engine. The company was subsequently sued by individual writers, publishers, and the Authors Guild—litigation that has had a tortured history that resulted in a settlement a federal judge rejected last year. Now the battle is back on. The guild is seeking the minimum $750 in copyright damages per each allegedly infringing work—making it potentially among the highest copyright damages cases in litigation history. More

Surprise Bounty for a Cleanup Artist
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Daryl Kelly lives in the Bronx and has never spent a night outside New York City. Harry Shunk had photographs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and he worked with some of the great artists of the late twentieth century. Kelly is a cleanup man. Shunk was a recluse and a compulsive hoarder. Their fates crossed in 2006 under the worst of circumstances: in Shunk's West Village apartment, where his body had decomposed for about ten days before it was found, trapped by stacks of his accumulated possessions. The death of one may be a fresh start for the other. More
