Digital Copyright: Protecting Intellectual Property on the Internet
Digital Copyright: Protecting Intellectual Property on the Internet (Prometheus Books) January 2001

In 1998, copyright lobbyists succeeded in persuading Congress to enact laws greatly expanding copyright owners' control over the private uses of their works. The efforts to enforce these rights have resulted in highly publicized legal battled between established media and upstart Internet companies such as Napster. In this book, Prof. Litman questions whether copyright laws crafted by lawyers and their lobbyists really make sense for the rest of us. Winner of WSU Board of Governors Faculty Recognition Award for 2002/03.
