‘No corner of copyright law promises to be more vexed - or consequential - over the next quarter-century than exceptions and limitations. This superb collection ably illuminates all of the most salient issues.'
Paul Goldstein - Lillick Professor of Law, Stanford University, California
‘Copyright has grown to become a major subject of public debate, and the well-known authorities in this engaging volume have excelled in describing and contributing to that debate. Has copyright become a bloated impediment to creativity as William F. Patry contends? Is the author losing out to capitalist publishers and the internet, which is what Jane C. Ginsburg suggests? Can the great Canadian public debate of recent years, so well described by Michael Geist, guide the law in other countries? How fares fair use? Justin Hughes will tell you with insight. And more. Any serious policymaker or copyright student will not only have to read this book but will also enjoy doing so.'
R. Hon Sir Robin Jacob - Hugh Laddie Professor of Intellectual Property Law, University College London
‘In this volume, a first-rate group of contributors debates the future of copyright at a time when the policy debate is tilting away from maximalism, and re-focusing on the value of copyright limitations and exceptions. Readers will gain a deep understanding of the history of copyright limitations and exceptions, and the current debate over their future - a debate that ranges over both copyright's empirics and its foundational justifications. This book is essential for IP scholars and professionals, and will be accessible to anyone interested in the current debate over culture and creativity.'
Christopher Jon Sprigman - Co-Director, Engelberg Center on Innovation Law and Policy, New York University
