Description

Paper by Orla Egan exploring copyright issues in relation to the Cork LGBT Digital Archive and other community digital archives. It argues that digitising items for inclusion in the LGBT Digital Archive is fair dealing and reasonable use, as defined under the Irish 2000 Copyright and Related Rights Act, as it does not in any way “unreasonably prejudice the interests of the owner of the copyright.” Facilitating public access and the dissemination of information about the Cork LGBT community, through the Cork LGBT Digital Archive, is in keeping with the ethos in which the artefacts were produced.
