Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Readers with an interest in doing business on the Internet, or in the specific issue of copyright, should not be without this book....[C]learly written and sensibly argued. A timely and very useful resource." Booklist

Review:

"Litman's argument that copyright laws are artificially stacked against emerging technologies is a persuasive one." Inside Magazine

Book News Annotation:

Litman (law, Wayne State U.) makes a forceful argument, written in clear English, for the imminent and current problems to be expected from the 1998 Copyright Law in the US, as well as other rulings leading up to it, that seek to limit free access to information on the Internet in favor of the companies that hold the copyright. She outlines the difficulties and inconsistencies within the law, and offers a revised version that would reform it.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In this enlightening book, law professor Litman questions whether copyright laws really make sense for the majority of people. Should every interaction between consumers and copyright-protected works be restricted by law? Here she argues for reforms that reflect common sense and the way people behave in their daily digital interactions.
