Description

Copyright has been the subject of interdisciplinary inquiry, but generally from the perspective of ‘authorship'. This volume takes a different tack, examining the concept of infringement and its cousins, imitation and inspiration, from a variety of approaches. Rather than proposing a litany of discrete chapters each independently covering a different discipline, the Editors have planned each chapter to pair lawyers' and non lawyers' perspectives, so that each commentator addresses and critiques his or her counterpart's analysis.

  • Interdisciplinary discussion of copyright and piracy examines the unauthorised exploitation of works of authorship from multiple perspectives
  • Each chapter matches a lawyer with a contributor from another discipline, introducing readers to different disciplinary approaches, and exposing non-lawyers to legal analysis
  • Extensive cross-disciplinary bibliography provides a basis for future research
