The first treatise to focus exclusively on this important but elusive concept in copyright law, the new Substantial Similarity in Copyright Law gives you an essential understanding of the element that determines a central question: What constitutes wrongful copying?Designed as a systematic approach to the analysis of substantive similarity, this much-needed new resource concentrates on the key factors that the courts use to compare works in copyright infringement litigation. Substantial Similarity in Copyright Law examines substantial similarity as a concept and shows how it differs from probative similarity and striking similarity two related but different principles. It then helps you to distinguish between similarities that trigger a finding of wrongful copying and those similarities that dont.Substantial Similarity in Copyright Law clarifies for you the principal tests that the courts use in considering substantial similarity, which are all designed to help determine whether the copying is quantitatively and qualitatively sufficient to support the conclusion of infringement.
