International Copyright : Principles, Law and Practice
This text surveys and analyzes the principal legal doctrines affecting copyright practice around the world, in both transactional and litigation settings. The book provides a step-by-step methodology for advising clients involved in exploiting creative works in or from foreign countries. 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 neighbouring 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.
