Main Volume Information
Finally, a functional, “to-the-point” alternative to the expansive texts on copyright law, covering the most current cases and pivotal decisions
Copyright Law Deskbook expertly addresses the law and practice of copyright. It provides a thorough treatment of the relevant law, with a particular emphasis on, and analyses of, recent case law developments. Yet the book manages to stay far more pragmatic than existing treatises on the subject. This text aims to be useful rather than monumental, focusing on particular disputes and rendering details specific to legal questions decided by the courts so that practitioners can determine which cases are most likely to be germane to the questions they need answered.
With copyright law having undergone dramatic changes since the development of the internet as a commercial, artistic, and intellectual hub, the Deskbook is invaluable for its exploration of cases in which existing copyright content is being aggregated, adapted, and distributed in ways unforeseen by Congress when it passed the Copyright Act in 1976. The treatise offers the most up-to-date and significant aspects of the law, including fair use, work for hire, copyrightability, digital rights and the DMCA, international considerations, damages, formalities, preemption, and litigation issues. Some of the book’s highlights include:
Copyright Law Deskbook comes with an Annotated Case Digest on CD-ROM that covers every significant copyright law decision from 1993 to 2011. This Case Digest includes a compilation of Robert W. Clarida’s annual case law summaries that have been published each year, beginning in 1993, in the Journal of the Copyright Society of the U.S.A. Now these case law summaries are integrated and electronically searchable by case name, docket number, jurisdiction, issue, and type of media.
