Jot: German Intranet Copyright Paragraph Dispute

Heise runs a small article on the ongoing discussion about paragraph 52a of the German Copyright Act, which specifies
"the conditions under which teachers and scientists are allowed to make "small parts" of works "publicly available" via Intranet to "certain circumscribed circles of persons - participating in lessons" or "for the sake of their own scientific research."" [quote from the article-RL]
The paragraph is under a time limit, and might cease to apply.
