This usefull book 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 and some decisions by the courts which have changed our understanding of what the law means. There is also expanded coverage of moral rights and the text has been expanded by the use of practical examples to illustrate complex points. Areas such as originality, databases, and the use of broadcast material in education all receive additional attention. And of course Wikipedia, Flickr, MySpace, Yahoo, Creative Commons and Open Archives are considered in a copyright context.

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

  • literary, dramatic and musical works
  • artistic works
  • sound recordings
  • films and videos
  • broadcasts
  • databases
  • computer programs and websites.
The text is complemented by a detailed index that enables the enquirer to pinpoint topics and proposed action quickly and accurately. The appendices lay out the statutory declaration forms, and provide helpful lists of addresses and selected further sources of information.
