State Archives' Preservation of Culture Deserves Protection, Brief Argues

October 1, 2019—SAA has joined with the American Library Association, Association of College and Research Libraries, Association of Research Libraries, and Software Preservation Network in a September 27 amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in Allen v. Cooper.  To date, state repositories have enjoyed some protection from copyright suit due to sovereign immunity, and therefore have been willing to shoulder some additional risk when exercising fair use.  This case could upset this balance. Our brief recognizes and celebrates the special role that state-owned archives and libraries have in preserving culture. Read the full brief here. And for more information about copyright prepared by SAA’s Intellectual Property Working Group, click here.

My culture


In my culture, when it comes to weddings or engagements, we tend to stay away from anything black because for us it symbolizes a dark omen. Like when you guess the character and you get it wrong each and every time or when your bubble shoot download keeps failing over and over again. It would mean that the marriage will be rocky and the couple will not be happy while being married to each other. That is why we stick to either bright or earthy colors and we steer clear from black as it will jinx the entire gacha life download free event if it were even to appear anywhere in the wedding source.
