Product description

Now in its fourth edition, Laddie, Prescott & Vitoria on The Modern Law of Copyright and Designs takes account of important changes from EC directives since the third edition and reflects current industry practice.

Fully updated in three volumes, the book considers the main aspects of copyright and performers’ rights, which are now closely related. It examines literary, dramatic and musical works regarded as original works; sound recordings; broadcasting; infringements and ownership of copyright and performers’ rights; licences; and registered and unregistered designs.

This is the unrivalled authority on all issues that are important to those practising in the field of copyright, especially solicitors, barristers, patent agents, IP academics, the judiciary, in-house lawyers, publishers and collecting societies. Fully comprehensive and accessible, with worked examples and in-depth discussions, it contains all the historical and contextual material needed to ensure the practitioner is expertly briefed in this complex and fast-moving area of law.
