Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This book challenges the prevailing view of cinema and cinema culture that Hollywood/the US creates, produces and exports, with other countries importing, sometimes modifying and sometimes pirating 'original' American work. Instead the book argues that the 'original ideas' which underpin the moneymaking activities of the 'creative industries', and for which 'ownership' is secured through copyright, are often imported, 'borrowed' and modified by Hollywood itself from other cultures and national cinemas. The book considers especially Chinese and Korean cinema, and film 'piracy' in these countries, to show that ideas of cultural ownership and copyright are not as straightforward as they may at first seem, and that copyright is perhaps primarily a lever through which cultural control is exercised by the cultural big business of the dominant power.

Synopsis:

This book challenges the prevailing view of cinema and cinema culture, that Hollywood/the US creates, produces and exports, with other countries importing, sometimes modifying and sometimes pirating 'original' American work.

Synopsis:

This is a succint and well-written book introducing a truly interdisciplinary approach to the study of copyright and related issues in contemporary popular culture in relation to the current development of Asian cinema, and questions how copyright is appropriated to regulate culture. It examines the many meanings and practices pertaining to copying in cinema, demonstrating the dynamics between globalization's desire for cultural control and cinema's own resistance to such manipulation.

Focusing on the cinema of China, Taiwan and Hong Kong, and film 'piracy' in these countries, the book argues that ideas of cultural ownership and copyright are not as clear-cut as they may at first seem, and that copyright is used as a means through which cultural control is exercised by the cultural big business of the dominant power.
