Don’t mistake this book for one of those dry, dusty, ’just the facts, ma’am’ reference volumes. Cheryl Besenjak’s delightfully written, fascinating guide to copyright outshines many other books that merely list rules and regulations when they address aspects of the law. Besenjak brings the beauty of copyright to life, providing plenty of examples. She draws you into her subject with a chatty, yet authoritative voice. This second edition includes an up-to-date look at copyright protection and copyright infringement as it relates to the Internet and other rapidly changing technologies. getAbstract.com recommends this book to anyone who deals with written matter or intellectual property.
