Incorporating changes during the four years since the first edition appeared, law scholars Cohen (Georgetown U.), Lydia Pallas Loren (Lewis and Clark College), Ruth L. Okediji (U. of Minnesota), and Maureen A. O'Rourke (Boston U.) offer law students a foundation in the traditional precepts of copyright law and a theoretical background with which to evaluate the public policy implications of the ongoing changes. They emphasize the importance of changing technologies for creating and distributing works, rely on secondary material to help clarify policy and judgments, and consider international developments.
