Hello all,

At the recent CSLP meeting the Rules of Use committee updated the membership with information that Oregon librarians will find interesting and useful. At the forefront is a response to our request to change the printing and custom paper product issue. As it currently stands, members may use the artwork "to create a quantity of less than 10,000 customized reading records or customized reading certificates to be printed in-house or by a local printer." All other customized paper items get "first right of refusal" from the Exclusive Vendor.

Thank you to Oregon librarians for speaking up on this issue. It is because of your activism that use of the artwork with customized reading logs was resolved in such a manner. From the meeting it seemed like other states had the issue, but didn't voice their frustration like you did. Great job!

Another issue that received attention at the committee meeting was that of partners/sponsors and their use of CSLP copyrighted materials. The committee clarified that partners/sponsors are great as long as they do not reflect negatively on CSLP (see article 2 of the bylaws if you need any clarification). Any recognition of a partner/sponsor on the library's website may not contain a hyperlink to the partner/sponsor's website (though oddly you can have their internet address without a hyperlink). Partners/sponsors may only use "the CSLP Approved Logos found in the Downloads section of the CSLP website" in any display they use to show that they are helping out with summer programming. They may not use "art/graphics in any form from the Manual/CD/DVD[.]"

The committee also visited other issues during the year. They:

*         Registered the trademarked CSLP logos

*         Negotiated more logo use with Highsmith (CSLP Exclusive Vendor)

*         Added a FAQ section to the website

*         Responded to various questions from members and others

*         Wagged their fingers (and backed it up with lawyers) at people making money off their trademarked graphics, or misusing the CSLP name

*         Reviewed and edited the CSLP Rules of Use

*         Did a great presentation, IN SONG, of the above at the CSLP meeting!

If you'd like more information on this subject, please review the full April 2011 Annual Report (from which I have quoted heavily in this update: http://www.cslpreads.org/about/rules-of-use.html.
