Copinger & Skone James on Copyright is a major practitioner text on copyright and related rights. Now in its 16th edition, the book covers all aspects of copyright and related rights. Structured around four fundamental rights - copyright, moral rights, rights in performances and rights in unregistered designs - it provides you with in-depth coverage that you can apply in your practice.

Volume 1 contains comprehensive commentary on and analysis of relevant UK and EU legislation and all important court decisions from the UK and the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU). The first 10 chapters deal fully with the four fundamental rights mentioned above and cover major recent developments, such as:-

  • Baigent v The Random House Group Limited,
  • Football Association Premier League Ltd v QC Leisure,
  • Football Dataco Ltd v Brittens Pools Ltd,
  • Lucasfilm Ltd v Ainsworth,
  • Nova Productions Limited v Mazooma Games Limited,
  • SAS Institute Inc v World Programming Ltd,
  • Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation v Newzbin Ltd,
  • Infopaq International A/S v Danske Dagblades Forening and
  • SGAE v Padaman.

Additional chapters cover Crown copyright, publication right, database right, artist's resale right, TPMs, rights management information, fraudulent reception and public lending right. There is also commentary on the collective management of these rights and on controls on their exercise by the Copyright Tribunal and under EU and UK competition law.

Volume 2 contains the up to date texts of all relevant UK and European legislative and quasi-legislative materials. The core statute (the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988) is set out in such a way as to enable you to trace its history through its numerous amendments. There are also basic precedents and court forms.
