Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 2011 - Copyright - 323 pages
The arrival of the Internet upended the relatively settled world of copyright law and has forced the complete rethink of how rights to a work are allocated and how delivery formats affect an originator's claims to the work. Most of the disputes around novel Internet media delivery systems derive from views on what constitutes a proper understanding of copyright.
