This ground-breaking casebook provides a comprehensive and comprehensible account of international copyright and neighboring rights law, from the cornerstone of the 1886 Berne Convention and the Rome Convention of 1961, through to the 1994 TRIPS Agreement and the 1996 and later WIPO Copyright Treaties. It examines how national laws have implemented the international norms, and explores the issues these sources have left ambiguous or unresolved.
Ginsburg and Treppoz, two of the leading lights in international copyright law, bring their expert commentary and provocative questions to judiciously selected extracts from cases, analytical texts, and the texts of the treaties themselves, to develop a deeply nuanced understanding of this field. The approach centers on comprehending the international law and international treaties and, rather than analyzing the treaties in turn and in abstract, offers a concrete issue-by-issue treatment of the subject.
Key features of the casebook:
- Written by two leading authorities in the field
- Carefully selected extracts from primary and secondary sources
- Build a clear picture of the field
- Expert analytical commentary and questions set the extracts in context
- U.S. and E.U. perspectives integrated throughout the text to ensure maximum relevance and encourage students to make comparative assessments
- An issue-based approach that synthesizes the treaties and facilitates a nuanced understanding
- Exposition of lacunae in the treaties, and extensive consideration of how private international law fills the gaps
- Leads students through the field from beginning to end.
