This volume explores a vast number of rulings and legislative revisions, bringing the reader up-to-date for 2000. A comprehensive casebook, it 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. A blend of conventional casebook style, questions, problems and concise text reflecting the authors' expertise in the subject of copyright and entertainment law, this book is adaptable to various teaching methods. Numerous illustrations, and reproductions of photos and paintings help bring the concepts to life, adding interest-value to legislative materials. Minimal editing of opinions preserves the flavour of the judicial analysis and demonstrates the interpretative ambiguities and holes in the law. The sixth edition covers and explores all major changes in this area, including: caselaw that casts doubt on the viability of the key Playboy Enterprises case, indicating that a service provider may not be held directly liable for infringement by a use of its system; the Term Extension Act, lengthening US copyright protection by an additional 20 years; amendments to the Copyright Act to bring US law into compliance with the WIPO treaty; and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (authorizing the copying of software by a computer owner for the purpose of repair or maintenance, effectively overruling Mai Systems Corp. versus Peak Computer). While there is no separate teacher's manual, this casebook frequently cross-refers to the leading treatise, "Nimmer on Copyright", an authority on copyright law and staple in law libraries. The volume includes a 2002 supplement and a letter update service is available.
