Digital technology has forever changed the way media is created, accessed, shared and regulated, raising serious questions about copyright for artists and fans, media companies and internet intermediaries, activists and governments. Taking a rounded view of the debates that have emerged over copyright in the digital age, this book:

Looks across a broad range of industries including music, television and film to consider issues of media power and policy.Features engaging examples that have taken centre stage in the copyright debate, including high profile legal cases against Napster and The Pirate Bay, anti-piracy campaigns, the Creative Commons movement, and public protests against the expansion of copyright enforcement.Considers both the dominant voices, such as industry associations, and those who struggle to be heard, including ordinary media users, drawing on important studies into copyright from around the world.

Offering media students and scholars a comprehensive overview of the contemporary issues surrounding intellectual property through the struggle over copyright, Understanding Copyright explores why disagreement is rife and how the policymaking process might accommodate a wider range of views.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Digital networks allow millions to vote with their mice against copyright law even as digitally global creative industries vote with their millions to uphold their control. In contrast Klein, Moss and Edwards call for a revitalized and deliberative democratic debate over the future of copyright. This clear, balanced and informative account of the current state of copyright in the digital age is itself a vital contribution to that debate.
-- Dr Matthew David
