This casebook emphasizes the fundamentals of copyright law while providing comprehensive coverage of major contemporary issues such as the distribution of works on the Internet, fair use, and service provider liability. The extensive coverage of areas related to copyright such as moral rights, unfair competition, and publicity rights distinguishes this casebook from other books on copyright law. Traditional case and statutory analysis is supplemented by a rich collection of background materials that offer practical and policy perspectives on established doctrines and developing issues. The book is manageable in size and organized to accommodate either a two-credit or three-credit course on copyright law. The new Thirteenth Edition has been thoroughly updated and includes major Supreme Court opinions on the fair use of computer software, the copyrightability of legislative enactments, and state sovereign immunity, along with a new Second Circuit opinion on preemption of the right of publicity. New notes and background materials provide perspective on the emerging proposals for copyright reform.
