New! The Music Copyright Manual, by Jim Jesse, (generously donated to the Law Library by Shannon K. Mauer of Duane Morris LLP)
Written from the perspective of an attorney who is also a musician and songwriter, The Music Copyright Manual is a practical introduction to copyright for the non-specialist and a jumping-off point to more expansive materials at the Law Library, such as Nimmer on Copyright. Topics include: why it’s important for music producers to know about the copyright principles covered, including the exclusive rights that come with a copyright, and the challenge of applying copyright principles in the digital age. The concluding chapters cover copyright infringement lawsuits from the plaintiff and defense perspectives, as well as damages and famous copyright cases.
