Cultures of Copyright : Contemporary Intellectual Property

Cultures of Copyright : Contemporary Intellectual Property

Description

The symbols, signs, and traces of copyright and related intellectual property laws that appear on everyday texts, objects, and artifacts have multiplied exponentially over the past 15 years. Digital spaces have revolutionized access to content and transformed the ways in which content is porous and malleable. In this volume, contributors focus on copyright as it relates to culture. The editors argue that what "counts" as property must be understood as shifting terrain deeply influenced by historical, economic, cultural, religious, and digital perspectives.
Key themes addressed include issues of how:
* Culture is framed, defined, and/or identified in conversations about intellectual property;
* The humanities and other related disciplines are implicated in intellectual property issues;
* The humanities will continue to rub up against copyright (e.g., issues of authorship, authorial agency, ownership of texts);
* Different cultures and bodies of literature approach intellectual property, and how competing dynasties and marginalized voices exist beyond the dominant U.S. copyright paradigm.
Offering a transnational and interdisciplinary perspective, Cultures of Copyright offers readers - scholars, researchers, practitioners, theorists, and others - key considerations to contemplate in terms of how we understand copyright's past and how we chart its futures.
