Brauneis and Schechter's Copyright: A Contemporary Approach, 2d

By: Robert Brauneis, Roger E. Schechter
ISBN: 9781683285557

This Interactive Casebook provides a comprehensive, thoroughly updated, and provocative introduction to copyright doctrine, policy and the contemporary controversies that animate the field. Numerous call-out boxes provide students direct links to a wealth of on-line resources including audio and video clips of the work at issue in many of the included cases. Short essays interspersed throughout the volume -- called "Copyright in the Real World" -- link the material in the cases and notes to everyday scenarios with which students will be familiar. These features, along with the judiciously edited cases chosen for their interesting fact patterns, will promote lively class discussion and will suit the needs of all copyright teachers regardless of emphasis or level of experience.

The second edition utilizes the CasebookPlus™ platform, providing your students with digital access to self-assessments, written by the authors, that provide helpful explanations, a personal outline starter, and digital access to additional study resources, including Gilbert Law Dictionary.
