The explosive growth in communication technologies has put enormous strains on the law, no more so than on the law of copyright. In this book, David Vaver examines how the modern law of copyright and moral rights is coping with the new technologies. He provides a detailed, authoritative analysis of the most recent changes to the Copyright Act and their impact on copyright holders and users, including educational institutions, libraries, and archives.
Copyright Law, like its companion volume Intellectual Property Law by the same author, is written in a lively non-technical style. It examines in greater depth than the earlier volume issues such as: What does copyright protect? What rights do owners have? What new rights have been introduced and how do they affect the public? What rights do users have? What are moral rights and how are they enforced? How are copyrights managed and how are they enforced? What pitfalls should be avoided in licensing? A thoughtful discussion is included of the origins, justifications, and likely future directions of this branch of the law in the light of international developments, as well as how current deficiencies may be cured.
