The right of copyright owners to make their content available to the public is crucial in an environment driven by access. The Making Available Right provides in-depth analysis of this exclusive right and offers insights on how we can approach the right in a more transparent and principled manner.

Cheryl Foong articulates a conceptual framework for understanding this right in a dynamic communications environment, critically examines the similarities and differences in its implementation across the United States, the European Union and Australia, and draws out underlying themes that serve as lessons for reform. The author builds an analytical framework for the making available right that addresses copyright's underappreciated dissemination function - i.e. encouraging the dissemination of content to the public - in conjunction with its authorship function.

This thought-provoking book brings together detailed analysis of the law and a broader consideration of copyright's fundamental aims, and will be of interest to judges, practitioners and scholars concerned about how copyright deals with access going forward.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Cheryl Foong has gone in to bat for copyright dissemination and scored a century. She shows that the making available right, ''the key right in the digital age'', can become an unfailing instrument of dissemination. How? Consult her interpretive matrix - and the rest of this dense but rewarding book.'
--Ben Atkinson, James Cook University, Australia
