Copyright Title Donated to Collection

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.

World IP Day

World Intellectual Property Day is April 26. World IP day follows World Book and Copyright Day, on April 23 —the date commemorating the deaths, mere days apart, of William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes, in 1616.  This year’s theme for World IP Day is Innovation-Improving Lives.

In the spirit of these celebrations, the law library is highlighting our IP Research Guide, one of several of our new and expanding guide collection. Our IP guide lists Patent, Trademark, Copyright, and Trade Secret resources within or outside of the library. Find out more about Intellectual Property Day, and IP generally, at the World Intellectual Property Organization’s website.
