Climate is changing and research
indicates that communities recognize climate effects but are not sure what to
do. This "Issues and Ice Cream" will begin with a snapshot
of five recent Extension project partnerships (involving both internal and
external partners), and continue with discussion about the NH Coastal
Adaptation Workgroup and opportunities for your involvement.

Exhaustion of Rights: Copyright and the First Sale Doctrine
The U.S. Copyright Act grants to a copyright holder the right to reproduce, prepare derivative works, distribute copies, perform, and display a copyrighted work. These rights of the copyright holder, however, are not unlimited. One controversial issue in the news recently has involved the first sale doctrine and the extent to which copyright holders can control a copyrighted work after the first sale of the article has transpired and the copyright holder is no longer the owner of the work.
The question of how sequestration will impact our research programs is, as yet, largely unanswered. The political process has been unable to reach compromise and across-the-board budget cuts have been initiated. Across the Federal government, approximately $85 billion in budgetary resources have been canceled.
The Sequestration Resource Center, an online resource created by SRA International, has up-to-date information from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), federal agencies, and Congress regarding implementation and the potential impact of the forced budget cuts now in effect. It is continuously
updated as information becomes available.
Beginning March 18, 2013, the NSF will enhance the FastLane System to begin automated compliance checking for all required sections of full proposals. This will bring NSF systems in line with long-standing proposal preparation requirements as outlined in the NSF Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (Chapter II.C.2 of the Grant Proposal Guide (GPG)). Preliminary proposals are not affected by this system enhancement.
