Macintosh Workstations Library Exemption added to Software Rental Bill in U.S. Senate. In last month's issue, I briefly mentioned the existence of U.S. Senate Bill 198, The Computer Software Rental Amendments Act of 1989, introduced on January 25 by Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah. This Bill proposed in its original language to restrict the rental, leasing, or lending of computer software. I am happy to report that the library community responded to this potential restriction on their right to lend materials in any form an exemption for nonprofit libraries will be included in a new version of the Bill. I think that it is appropriate to examine this issue in more detail as it is of interest to all computer users in libraries. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Workstation Report Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Library Exemption added to Software Rental Bill in U.S. Senate. In last month's issue, I briefly mentioned the existence of U.S. Senate Bill 198, The Computer Software Rental Amendments Act of 1989, introduced on January 25 by Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah. This Bill proposed in its original language to restrict the rental, leasing, or lending of computer software. I am happy to report that the library community responded to this potential restriction on their right to lend materials in any form an exemption for nonprofit libraries will be included in a new version of the Bill. I think that it is appropriate to examine this issue in more detail as it is of interest to all computer users in libraries.
