A Copyright Bookshelf

Are you looking for a good book on copyright law?  I’ve set up a bookshelf on WorldCat with some of the newer books (post 2000) plus a few historic books for comparison of then and now.    Did I miss anything important?  Send a link to and I’ll add it, if it is listed on WorldCat.

Copyright Bookshelf

I’ve also started a Library Shelf of free e-books discussing copyright on Google Books.  These books mainly date before 1900, thus giving an interesting perspective, very removed from the philosophy of many today.

Copyright – Free E-Books

Let me know if you’ve found an interesting tome that is missing from these lists, or if you have found another listing of copyright books that we could share a link to.

The Legal Genealogist

One of the blogs I read every day is that of The Legal Genealogist (Judy G. Russell). Her posts are a great resource for deciphering your legal research as well as offering interesting family stories (enjoyable even if they aren’t my family).

On May 13, Judy delved into the topic of online sharing in a blog entitled FamilySearch: Sharing is Forever. For all those who share your genealogical research online I highly recommend you check out the post. It is up to you to know and understand what you are agreeing to when you put your information online.  Today she posted another blog Copyright and the Quilt that is also a must read.  While there, subscribe, you’ll never regret the few minutes you spend reading her posts each day.

If you read a good blog on copyright, send an email to so we can share!
