Cornish's Copyright, which has become a standard work in its field, explains the provisions of the UK Copyright Act and supporting legislation in quick and easy question-and-answer form.

This latest edition is revised and expanded in the light of new legislation which came into force in 2014/5 and some decisions by the courts which have changed our understanding of what the law means.

Areas such as moral rights, originality, databases, and the use of broadcast material in education all receive detailed attention, along with Wikipedia, Creative Commons and Open Archives. Copyright in the context of social media is also considered.

All types of material that may attract copyright are covered, including:-

  • literary, dramatic and musical works
  • artistic works
  • sound recordings
  • films and videos
  • broadcasts
  • databases
  • computer programs and websites.
The text is amplified by the use of practical examples to illustrate complex points and complemented by a detailed index that enables the enquirer to pinpoint topics and proposed action, quickly and accurately. The appendices provide helpful lists of addresses and selected further sources of information.

Graham Cornish has worked in the field of copyright since 1983 and advised the British Library on copyright matters for 18 years. He has run workshops and seminars in many different sectors of the information industry.
