San Francisco Law Library May Book Drive

Book Drive

Each month we will seek donors to purchase a new title for the Law Library. Here is our Wish List for the month of May. Growing our collection is about so much more than a single book—it is a living demonstration of how the Library expands the public’s access to justice and provides legal practitioners with the tools they need to represent members of our local community. Please see our Donation Guide for more ways to support the Law Library.

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.
