Editorial Reviews

Review

"Paul Goldstein's book is an amazingly complete analysis of copyright worldwide. It covers exhaustively not only national laws but also international treaties and their application in practice. This impressive volume reflects the vast erudition of its author and will be of precious use not only to practitioners but also to researchers and students."-Arpad Bogsch, Former Director General of the World Intellectual Property Organization

"This brave book will take a frontline position in the cohort of works dealing with international copyright because it is well-structured, knowledgeable, and above all readable. Since the U. S. joined the Berne Union in 1989, an account of the subject by a leading American scholar has been badly needed. Professor's Goldstein's work fills the gap splendidly."--Professor W. R. Cornish, University of Cambridge

"Professor Paul Goldstein has long been recognized as the leading contemporary American authority on copyright. With his new one-volume treatise, Goldstein extends his mastery to another watershed field. His exceptionally well written treatment covers key principles of both international copyright law and comparative copyright law."-Jane Ginsburg, Morton L. Janklow Professor of Literary and Artistic Property Law; Director of the Kernochan Center for Law, Media and the Arts, Columbia University

"Professor Paul Goldstein's presentation and subtle analysis of all international conventions in the field of copyright and neighboring rights, including TRIPs and European directives, is a pioneering masterpiece. It is brilliantly written and thoroughly structured, and will soon become an indispensable research tool for the entire international copyright community."--Gerhard Schricker, Professor of Law, University of Munich; Managing Director of the Max-Planck-Institute for Foreign and International Patent, Copyright and Competition Law, Munich

"Paul Goldstein has written a book which is not merely interesting but is likely to be a really useful tool. Previous books about international copyright have largely been recitations of the laws of different countries. Here, Paul Goldstein goes a lot further. He actually compares different laws and considers both the similarities and the differences in a constructive manner. His book will help copyright lawyers to understand better the fast changing world of copyright. I commend it."--The Honorable Sir Robin Jacob, Judge of the Chancery Division of the High Court of Justice of England and Wales

"Paul Goldstein is well known as one of the world's leading copyright experts. Now, he has written another great work in the field of copyright that reveals his mastery of international and comparative copyright law. It is a very valuable and reliable handbook for copyright practitioners both inside and outside the United States and a demanding and inspiring work for people studying copyright law beyond national borders."-Dr. Paul Katzenberger, Head of Department of the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Patent, Copyright and Competition Law, Munich

"This landmark treatise with the appendix of treaties and EU directives is of the utmost importance for practice and theory. The author successfully analyzes legal issues in a well-organized system and with outstanding clarity. The book is not only a heuristic standard for practitioners, but it also provides valuable insight enabling readers to more deeply consider the digital copyright problem in the Internet."--Dr. Zentaro Kitagawa, Director, Kyoto Comparative Law Center

"International Copyright is a Rosetta stone for decoding the bewildering array of international treaties, trade arrangements, contractual provisions, conflicting national laws and other hieroglyphs...Keep the useful [book] handy when the next international copyright infringement case arises or when your next licensing agreement gets negotiated."--N.Y. Law Journal

Format: Hardcover
This is an indispensable one-volume reference for practitioners and scholars of international copyright. It is a unique synthesis of copyright practice and law, taking into account the Bern Convention of 1989, the TRIPs Agreement concluded five years later, and the advent of the Internet. National copyright rules on protectible subject matter, ownership, term, and rights are covered in detail and compared from country to country, as are topics on moral rights and neighboring rights. Separate sections cover such important topics as territoriality, national treatment and choice of law, as well as the treaty and trade arrangements that underlie substantive copyright norms.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Sebastien Pigeon on July 31, 2001
Format: Hardcover
This is not a book for the average reader. Although anyone can appreciate the exquisite writing of Pr Goldstein, this book is tailored for lawyer who are interested in Copyright and international trade issues.
Starting with a brief history, the author asserts that international Copyright has brought the two existing systems of law (the Author's right and the Copyright) closer together. He then goes on with a detailed point-by-point analysis of the right and privileges granted by the numerous treaties. The second part of book is an analysis of the protection of foreign work in the US and the protection of US works abroad.
This book is truly a reference for anyone having to deal with the Berne Convention, WIPO Copyright treaty and TRIPS agreement. The appendix contains full text version of all those agreements, plus many more.
