The Copyright Law Deskbook, Second Edition addresses the law and practice of copyright, with an emphasis on case law developments. It explores decisions 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 book covers significant aspects of the law, including fair use, work for hire, copyrightability, digital rights and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, international considerations, damages, formalities, preemption, and litigation issues. Copyright Law Deskbook comes with an online Annotated Case Digest that covers every significant copyright law decision from 1993 to February 22, 2016.
Highlights covered in the Second Edition include jurisdiction and procedure: U.S. jurisdiction over acts of foreign infringement; personal jurisdiction based on a defendant’s internet activities; copyrightability: new decisions on the copyrightability of derivative works, real estate information, financial data, lighting fixtures, toys, the Visual Artists Rights Act, and cars as copyrightable “characters” in movies; and fair use: newest arguments in transformative technological use, both successful and not, including the digitization of library books; music file-sharing, and online “space shifting” of music files; fair use and Harry Potter reference books; and more.
The 2018 Cumulative Supplement adds the following new material:
The Federal Circuit in Oracle Am. Inc. v. Google LLC overturned a jury’s verdict that Google's use of Oracle’s Java software was a fair use as a matter of law, concluding that it was not transformative, and remanded for a trial on damages
