About this product
- DescriptionThe present state of copyright law and the way in which it threatens the remix of culture and creativity is a shared concern of the contributors to this unique book. Whether or t to remain within the underlying regime of intellectual property law, and what sort of reforms are needed if we do decide to remain within this regime, are fundamental questions that form the subtext for their discussions. One opinion that manifests itself in the book is that we should t reject present copyright law altogether, but rather find ways to fit it to the new digital techlogy, whilst others take a more sceptical view. They argue, for example, that the solution to copyright-related problems is simply to give up on copyright law altogether. The life and work of Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen presents an ideal focus and/or point of departure, giving the contributors a historical and well defined framework for their discussion of the various problems in relating copyright to cultural creativity. Copyright and Other Fairy Tales will be of great interest to scholars of intellectual property from a diversity of fields including law, ecomics, and cultural studies, as well as historians interested in the link between cultural creativity and the role of copyright in promoting (or preventing) such creativity.
