An Essential Guide to Our Current Copyright Situation,
This review is from: Copyright Unbalanced: From Incentive to Excess (Paperback)
This collection provides not only a persuasive case on the need for copyright reform, but it makes that case for copyright true believers and skeptics alike. Taking many such perspectives on their merit, this book make the case, again and again, that the current regime is not optimal from any perspective.
Putting aside the central thesis of the work, it is also an essential guide to exactly what the current reality is. It includes an in-depth analysis of DMCA, as well as what SOPA would have entailed had it been passed--not to mention a detailed treatment of the encroachment of criminal prosecution into what has long been a civil matter.
This is not a book you should miss if you want your knowledge of the copyright system to remain relevant.
