as adamant about supporting facul-
ty who make copies of publications
f r their classes.
Alger responded that the Univer-
sity needed to come up with copy-
The response was not sufficient.
"i want it to be said that the Uni-
aersity will defend the faculty is
they make mu It iple copies for
*lassroom use," Rosenberg said.
1ater, G ri ffit hs noted that if
someone had tried to get permis-
si on to use copyrighted material,
and had not gotten a response, it
was less likely to result in a law-
suit. "If the faculty does not exer-
cise their rights, they are going to
lose them," Rosenberg said after
Contracts between faculty and
urnals were also discussed.
"The University of Michigan, and
its faculty, are not exactly power-
less when we enter contracts,' said
Alger, adding that "we shouldn't
sian contracts unless we can't avoid
it, and we can."
Concerns regarding contracts
included the number of times the
a ut h or of a scholarly article
received less rights after signing
one than they would be given under
fair use rights. "There has to be a
very special reason why we should
give up fair use rights," Alger said.
There was also some discrepancy
as to the purpose of copyright laws.
Hilton said they should be about
the progression of ideas and not
about the protection of work.
The panel pointed out that ideas
can not be copyrighted and are only
protected by the IFirst A mendment.
Morris said copy right protects
expression, meaning that to use
someone's ideas without giving the
person recognition is legal, but it is
illegal to use someone's words.

Kurlekar and Wu traded arguments before taking questions
from the group.
Throughou the debate, Kurlekar reiterated diversity, reme-
dying for past wrongs and benefits to society as his three main
rationales fr afoirmative action.
"Minorities have a totally distinct experience in society
because of race," Kurlekar said. "I'm not saying that they all
'have the same experience as racial minorities, but the have an
experience that is intrinsic to their race."
Kurlekar also said that affirmative action is an attempt "to
correct the imbalance of starting points by addressing histori-
cal and social discrepancies"
"GPAs and test scores can't measure everything," Kurlekar
said. "They can't measure things like ability to overcome dis-
advantages and other aspects that add to a person's character."
In contrast, Wu argued that ideological diversity is more
pertinent to a university community than racial diversity and
championed socioeconomic affirmative action as a more fair

"In classroom discussions, how often is it that a per-son's
cultural background really has an influence? Wu said.
"What's more interesting is when someone really conservative
or really religious comes in. The different ideologies are what
leads to a truly robust discussion."
He added that the current racial preference admissions sys-
tem at the University forces people to view others as general-
ized groups rather than individuals.
"Look at our group, he said. "You could be Asian and be a

of a wealthy Chinese family.
Wu also said that the standardized test score disparity is not
so much a race problem but a class problem.
"I igher income equals higher test scores, he said.
After the meeting, several people lingered to continue the
