International Issues: Which Country's Law Applies When Works are Made Available Over the Internet?

Ginsburg, Jane C.

"My topic is International Implications, a topic that would not exist but for the
Internet. When access to archival materials was on a physical basis, patrons came
to the archive and consulted the material on site; the material did not leave the
archive, much less get sent overseas. Even digitized materials, if consulted on site,
do not present the problems that arise if the archives puts this material on a website,
which is accessible around the world, that ubiquity being the default condition of
the Internet."
