Get the latest information on new developments in copyright law! This timely volume sheds light on the important legal issues that influence the scholarly publishing world. The often-confusing field of publishing law--including copyright, licensing, liability, electronic publishing, and taxation--is going through an unprecedented upheaval as we move into the twenty-first century. Publishing and the Law: Current Legal Issues offers clear, current explanations of the implications of recent laws and technologies and predicts what further changes to expect. Featuring legal, business, and publishing experts, Publishing and the Law discusses the wide-ranging implications of the decline of fair use, the rise of software licensing, the Communications Decency Act, and such landmark legal cases as LaMacchia, Feist, and Matthew Bender. Questions of ownership, fair use, and licensing--historically a problem for authors such as Twain and Dickens--have become exacerbated by the fact that information is no longer static, but rather fluid and transportable. Publishing and the Law addresses the vital questions of interest to librarians, publishers, and scholars, including: How will changing technologies affect the legal status of libraries, universities, authors, and publishers? What are the latest trends in liability for authors and publishers? How does anti-trust law affect library budgets? Why is copyright giving way to licensing, and what does that mean for libraries? How has the definition of fair use changed? Do attempts to censor the Internet abrogate First Amendment rights? How does electronic publishing force changes to the rules that worked for traditional printed books and journals? In an age of advancing technology, Congress and the courts will be called upon with more and more frequency to maintain a balance between the copyright holder's economic interests and society's right to have access to information. Librarians, university administrators, authors, and publishers can benefit from Publishing and the Law: Current Legal Issues to help them understand current trends in intellectual property law.

Current Legal Issues in Publishing sheds light on important issues of the ever-changing, often-confusing world of copyright, licensing, and taxation as we move into the twenty-first century. You'll see how the questions of ownership, fair use, and licensing have become exacerbated by the fact that information is no longer static, but rather fluid and transportable. In an age of advancing technology, this book anticipates how Congress and the courts will be called upon with more and more frequency to maintain a balance between the copyright holder’s economic interests and society’s right to have access to information. Reading this book wil give you an understanding of the fundamental aspects and concepts of the Copyright Act--such as what constitutes an original work, for what categories copyright protection is available, and the basic rights of the copyright holder--and how they are being challenged in the digital world. The information and copyright landscape, as you will quickly percieve, becomes even more hazy in the context of the public library and university where special rights to information exist to facilitate learning and scholarship. Using this book as a tool, you will learn that because the future of the electronic age is unpredictable, copyright holders and university and library communities must work together to remain flexible and recognize the others’interests, particularly in the legislative arena. Comprehensive and informative, Current Legal Issues in Publishing looks at the copyright debate from many different perspectives, including from the creator, user community, and legal angles. Among the important topics you will read about are: the Uruguay Round Agreement the responsibility of copyright university ownership of faculty copyrights American Geophysical Union v. Texaco Inc. the Newark Morning Ledger Case library privileges and fair use legal aspects of electronic publishing on-line distribution rights As you read Current Legal Issues in Publishing and are introduced to the origins and development of copyright conventions, the measures taken to combat book piracy, and the conflict between industrial nations and developing ones over copyright issues, you will form your own conclusions to the arguments for and against the current worldwide copyright system. You will also see that questions of ownership and economic and market rights are inextricably linked with questions of power and who can or cannot have access to information.

This book outlines implications for all those who look to Europe-from both within and without-for models of human rights implementation and multi-cultural accommodation.

In the last few decades, the law of the sea has been affected not only by the processes of globalisation that have changed the key interests of the international community but also by natural phenomena like climate change. In addition, technological advances that have opened up new opportunities to exploit marine resources and to produce energy and which make the sea in itself a resource, have contributed to a further development of the law of the sea. This book analyzes those areas of the law of the sea in which these transformations taking place seem to be more significant: migration by sea, the security of navigation and the fight against piracy, safety of navigation, protection of maritime labour, the legal framework governing the polar regions and some special issues relating to the harnessing of marine resources. This book offers a contribution to the study of the evolution of the law of the sea and will not fail to be of interest to academics in the field.

Current Legal Issues, like its sister volume Current Legal Problems (now available in journal format), is based upon an annual colloquium held at University College London. Each year leading scholars from around the world gather to discuss the relationship between law and another discipline of thought. Each colloquium examines how the external discipline is conceived in legal thought and argument, how the law is pictured in that discipline, and analyses points of controversy in the use, and abuse, of extra-legal arguments within legal theory and practice. Law and Global Health, the sixteenth volume in the Current Legal Issues series, offers an insight into the scholarship examining the relationship between global health and the law. Covering a wide range of areas from all over the world, articles in the volume look at areas of human rights, vulnerable populations, ethical issues, legal responses and governance.
