From its origins protecting the rights of authors and producers on a national level, copyright has expanded to become a semi-harmonised body of law with international reach. With the advance of technology, and in particular the Internet, that reach is directly influencing how many types of business operate and use and protect rights around the world. 
 
This title features contributions from experts in 40 jurisdictions, setting out the legal framework of  their copyright law and how to protect and exploit rights in creative works. It covers the types of work that can be protected, formalities for and duration of protection, rules relating to the ownership of copyright works and infringement.
 
International Copyright Law will assist individuals in multinational companies and lawyers in private practice who deal with copyright works such as publications, music and films in knowing their rights under copyright law in all the main markets in the world.
