This excellent resource brings the reader up-to-date regarding the state of art, and each chapter adds analytical depth and insight. Everybody with an interest in copyright will be enlightened and inspired by this rich selection of contributions on topical issues.' -- Jorgen Blomqvist, University of Copenhagen, Denmark `Under the expert guidance of Paul Torremans, leading international scholars offer a fascinating overview of what is happening in today's copyright world. The book feels like a springtime walk in the park of copyright, revealing blossoms of fresh insights and outbursts of new colourful touches everywhere.' -- Frank Gotzen, Emeritus Professor, KU Leuven and President ALAI Acclaim for first edition -- `. . . this book provides an interesting insight into many aspects of copyright law. It is a useful resource not only for those whose core practice is copyright but also those involved in industries reliant on copyright.' - New Zealand Law Journalshow more
