DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Cyber Law: Intellectual Property in the Digital Age” book has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.
For nearly three hundred years, copyright laws have targeted those who illegally copy copyrighted works. Today, the legal framework also targets those who thwart protective technologies.
‘Cyberlaw: Intellectual Property in the Digital Millennium’ is the definitive guide to the copyright revolution sparked by the need to protect against piracy and unauthorized copying on the Internet.
This newly updated law book explains the anti-circumvention and anti-trafficking rules of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), the provisions of the law for the protection of copyright management information (CMI) and its attempts to reduce the exposure of Internet Service Providers to secondary liability for copyright infringement. It analyzes the anti-trafficking rules and explains in detail how several courts have failed to correctly apply the rules to complex technologies. It also explains how these rules flow from the emerging “federal common law” of copyright and how the still-developing federal common law may render reliance on these rules unnecessary.
The book analyzes how common law rules on secondary liability for copyright infringement, as affected by the Supreme Court’s Grokster decision, operate in the context of the Internet, and how statutory overlays have complicated their functioning. Finally, the book discusses the background and origins – and underlying treaties – of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and its substantive provisions, including the special power of subpoena, the special cause of action for fraud relating to infringement notification; and their relationship to state and other federal laws.
It explores not only the rules, but also their complex exceptions and the distinct civil causes of action and criminal penalties for violation. It clarifies the complex rules governing copy control technologies, including gray areas, and explores possible challenges to the law under the First Amendment, the Due Process Clause, and the Patent and Copyright Clause. author. Emerging case law in the field of copyright and Internet law is embedded throughout.
