Media, Technology and Copyright is an interdisciplinary work that applies economic theory to central topical issues in the law of intellectual property. Based on the author's professional experience as a professor, lecturer, and consultant, the volume represents the first full-length consideration of the diverse topics of law and copyright by a professional economist. Opening chapters of the book involve issues in the analog domain, including the economics of infringement, fair use, property damages, liability rules, compulsory licensing, and publicity rights. Chapters on digital rights include topics related to software, databases, and cyber-law, including digital rights management, file-sharing, music licensing, deep linking, framing, and contributory infringement. The author also brings economic insights to competition law for intellectual property, including antitrust, copyright misuse, and applications in the European Union. Written in non-technical language for an interdisciplinary audience of lawyers, economists, students, artists, and professionals in the content industry, the book provides a comprehensive study for anyone interested in the issues surrounding intellectual p

Industry Reviews

"'In this new book, Einhorn puts his wealth of personal experience to work to fully and clearly describe a myriad of topics that are at the forefront of intellectual property management today. The book will provide stimulating reading for any person, both academic scholar and practitioner, interested in the way new technologies, above all the Internet and digital content, are affecting the legal treatment of copyrightable intellectual property and related business methods and practices. The book is extremely informative, clearly written, and obviously meticulously researched. Definitely recommendable reading.' - Richard Watt, Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Spain"
