This path-breaking two-volume collection brings together seminal contributions by leading scholars to the vibrant literature on copyright that has emerged over the past few decades. Volume one consists of articles analyzing copyright from the perspective of history, philosophy and democratic theory. Volume two focuses on the economics of copyright, including monopoly theory, public goods theory, price discrimination, transaction cost economics and political economy. This important collection, with an original introduction by the editor, will be of great value to scholars, students and practitioners interested in the topical field of copyright, as well as the broader area of intellectual property law.
