"The new information landscape is raising more questions than ever about intellectual property. The advent of Google, YouTube, iPods and URLs has led to a plethora of court cases involving copyrights, trademarks, and patents." "Against this rapidly changing background, copyright expert Timothy Wherry takes a look at intellectual property issues and provides the perspective and tools library patrons and staff need." "Containing examples, trivia, and accounts of real-life court cases that bring alive the issues in intellectual property, this book protects you from overstepping the bounds of legal use in a fast-changing digital environment."--BOOK JACKET.
