AUTHOR

Goldstein, Paul

SUMMARY

From eighteenth-century copyright law, to current-day copyright issues on the internet, to tomorrow's "celestial jukebox"--a digital repository of books, movies, and music available on demand--Paul Goldstein presents a thorough examination of the challenges facing copyright owners and users. One of the nation's leading authorities on intellectual property law, Goldstein offers an engaging, readable, and intelligent analysis of the effect of copyright on American politics, economy, and culture. Goldstein presents and analyzes key legal battles, including Supreme Court decisions on home taping and 2 Live Crew's contested sampling of Roy Orbison's "Pretty Woman." In this revised edition, the author expands the discussion to cover electronic media, including an examination of recent Napster litigation, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and the vexed Secure Digital Music Initiative, under which record companies attempted to develop effective encryption standards for their products. Praise for the first edition: "A clever and vibrant book that traces copyright history from the invention of the printing press through current challenges to copyright from new technologies . . . . Most compelling [on] multimedia technologies." --Sabra Chartrand, The New York Times "This eminent authority writes with clarity, lucidity and a wry sense of humor about a subject whose complexities can be daunting." --Jonathan Kirsch, Los Angeles Times "A wonderfully American tale of how law, literature, politics and megabucks intersect." --William Petrocelli, San Francisco ChronicleGoldstein, Paul is the author of 'Copyright's Highway From Gutenberg to the Celestial Jukebox', published 2003 under ISBN 9780804747486 and ISBN 0804747482.
