Abstract:

"In this book, law professor Jessica Litman questions whether copyright laws crafted by lawyers and their lobbyists really make sense for the rest of us. Should every interaction between ordinary consumers and copyright-protected works be governed by laws drafted without ordinary consumers in mind? Is it practical to enforce such laws, or to expect consumers to obey them? Most important, what are the effects of such laws on the exchange of information in a free society? Litman's critique exposes the 1998 copyright law as incoherent. She argues for commonsense reforms that reflects the way people actually behave in their daily digital interactions."--Jacket.
