Copyright law: essential cases and materials
This brand-new copyright casebook differs from other copyright law casebooks in a number of respects. First, this casebook emphasizes the essential materials at the heart of the subject. The result is a streamlined and exceptionally clear casebook, in which the main themes, ideas, and theories in this exciting and dynamic field are not obscured by extraneous readings. Second, the casebook takes full advantage of technology by providing access to a companion website containing an extensive library of additional modules, topics, edited cases, notes, problems, and audio-visual materials from cases and hypotheticals for use in class. The book is authored by two experts in the field, who have written extensively about copyright, the arts, and the impact of new technology. The approach is both practical and theoretically sophisticated, with a particular focus on the latest controversies in the field.
