This uniquely comprehensive casebook, first published in 1971, covers areas of law fundamental to the practice of copyright and entertainment litigation, including the right of privacy, defamation, right of publicity, and unfair competition.
Cases and Materials on Copyright and Other Aspects of Entertainment Litigation offers a classic blend of a conventional casebook style, minimal editing of cases, questions, problems and concise text reflecting the authors' expertise in the subject of copyright and entertainment law.
Unlike most law school casebooks, Cases and Materials on Copyright and Other Aspects of Entertainment Litigation includes numerous illustrations and reproductions of photographs and paintings from the cases included in the book. These photographs and paintings help bring the concepts addressed alive for students and add interest-value to the legislative materials presented to them.
This new Eighth Edition is completely updated to include cases and discussion of the most current issues and questions in copyright and entertainment law today, including:
- Fair use
- Preemption questions
- "Hot news" misappropriation claims
- Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress
- False light privacy
- Fantasy baseball issues
This book also is available in a three-hole punched, alternative loose-leaf version printed on 8.5 x 11 inch paper with wider margins and with the same pagination as the hardbound book.
