Product Description

This popular Cases & Materials on Copyright book explores the vast number of new rulings and legislative revisions. As before, this uniquely comprehensive casebook covers areas of law fundamental to the practice of Copyright and Entertainment Litigation, including the right of privacy, defamation, right of publicity, and unfair competition. A classic blend of conventional casebook style, questions, problems and concise text reflecting the authors' expertise in the subject of copyright and entertainment law, this book is adaptable to various teaching methods. Numerous illustrations, and reproductions of photos and paintings help bring the concepts to life, adding interest-value to legislative materials. Minimal editing of opinions preserves the flavor of the judicial analysis and demonstrates the interpretive ambiguities and holes in the law.

Cases & Materials on Copyright covers and explores all major changes in this area, including:

Recent case law that casts doubt on the viability of the key Playboy Enterprises case, indicating that a service provider may not be held directly liable for infringement by a use of its system;
The Term Extension Act, lengthening U.S. copyright protection by an additional 20 years;
Amendments to the Copyright Act to bring U.S. law into compliance with the WIPO treaty; and
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (authorizing the copying of software by a computer owner for the purpose of repair or maintenance, effectively overruling Mai Systems Corp. v. Peak Computer).
