Networks of Power in Copyright Law considers the challenge of creating a harmonised international market for digital services. Pursuing an interdisciplinary perspective on the question of how copyright law remains restrictive, the book addresses the role of industry representatives, collecting societies and legislative/executive bodies in the development of contemporary digital copyright law.

Focusing on the European Union, Benjamin Farrand argues that the harmonisation of copyright law is largely defined by the power relationships between legislative/executive bodies and industry representatives. Diverging from traditional legal analyses, Networks of Copyright Law offers a new approach for assessing the development of copyright law in an area that is as controversial as it is topical. It will be of considerable interest to scholars and practitioners working in the area of copyright, and especially digital copyright, law; as well as those concerned, more generally, with the relationship between industry and legislative bodies
