Multimedia technology is a key component of the Information Society. This book examines in detail the extent to which copyright law protects multimedia works. It does so from the perspective of UK law, but with due attention being paid to EU law, global treaties and comparative developments in other jurisdictions, such as Australia and the US.

The central argument of the book is that, to a significant extent, copyright law has been, and can be, adapted to cater for multimedia technology. As a result, it is neither necessary nor desirable to introduce separate copyright protection or sui generis protection for multimedia works.
