The practical user's guide to copyright and design law
Michael Flint's A User's Guide to Copyright is long established as the leading practical text on copyright law. The new, fully revised sixth edition is designed to bring you right up to date with copyright law in the UK and understand clearly how it affects you and your work.
For ease-of-use this well-respected reference book is split into two parts; part 1 contains a breakdown of relevant UK legislation; part 2 applies this legislation to the main industries in which copyright material is commonly exploited, including book and magazine publishers, newspapers, schools and universities, libraries, music publishers, television and radio stations, the music industry, museums and art galleries.
New technology, new legislation
Since the last edition, developments in technology have led to widespread copyright abuse, necessitating changes in the law. The sixth edition of this popular text has been extensively revised and updated to reflect the emergence of new means of digital exploitation. This book clearly illustrates the scope and relevance of copyright law in the new information technology era.
