The first edition of this book was the first UK text to examine digital copyright together with related areas such as performers' rights, moral rights, database rights and competition law as a subject in its own right, and the second edition dealt with the UK implementation of the 2001 Copyright Directive. >P> Now in its third edition, the book has been updated to address developments in copyright law, database law and moral rights and expanded to cover copyright law and user-generated content, and the development of Web 2.0 and beyond. Important recent UK, EU and US cases are discussed. As the UK Government and the European Commission explore possible changes to copyright law and as both the public and private sectors rely more and more on digital content and services, copyright law continues to be a hotly debated topic.
This book helps to put the ongoing copyright debate into perspective and provides practical guidance for those creating or exploiting digital content or technology, whether in academia, the software, information and creative industries, and other areas of the economy.
The focus is on the specifics of the law in this area together with the practical aspects, including precedents and precedent checklists dealing with common digital copyright transactions. Both academics and practitioners will find the book an invaluable guide to this rapidly developing field of law.
