Current Copyright Law provides the amended text of current copyright legislation following the 1998 implementation of the Duration of Copyright and the Rights in Performances Regulations 1995, the Copyright Related Rights Regulations 1996 and the Copyrights and Rights in Database Regulations 1997, which are placed literally into context.

Not only is the text of the 1988 Act set out, fully amended and updated, but the numerous free-standing Regulations, vital to the use and application of the Act, are printed alongside the appropriate sections, together with useful annotations.

Divided into three parts, Part 1 presents a comprehensive, narrative statement of copyright law as it stands after the implementation of the 1995,1996 and 1997 Regulations. Part 2 contains the Act, together with the relevant Regulations set out in their appropriate context whilst Part 3 reproduces the full text of the regulations, with a ""table of destination"" to show the part of the Act in which they appear.Covering both UK and EU areas of intellectual property law relating to copyright, this book provides a useful survey of the current regime for all practitioners working in the field of copyright law.
