With stimulating questions, comprehensive notes, and teachable cases as its hallmarks, Gorman and Ginsburg's Copyright serves as the authoritative law school casebook for the study of copyright law. The book's many well-chosen recent decisions cover issues such as the Napster case, the MP3.com fair use case, secondary liability, circumvention of technological protections, interpretation of pre-digital licenses, Internet transmission of music, distance education, and international issues. Traditional issues include protection for government-authored and incorporated works, joint ownership and community property, and the duration of copyright and the constitutionality of its extensions. Other topics include the World Trade Organization ruling on the Fairness in Music Licensing Act and developing theories about preemption of state law.
