Concepts of Music and Copyright
Editor: Andreas Rahmatian
Publisher: Edward Elgar Publishing
Copyright specialists have often focused on the exploitation of copyright of music and on infringement, but not on the question of how copyright conceptualises music. This highly topical volume brings together specialists in music, musicology and copyright law, providing a genuinely interdisciplinary research approach. It compares and contrasts the concepts of copyright law with those of music and musical performance. The contributors discuss the notions of the musical work, performance, originality, authorship in music and in copyright, and co-ownership from the perspective of their own disciplines. The book also examines the role of the Musicians’ Union in the evolution of performers’ rights in UK copyright law, and, in an empirical study, the transaction costs theory for notice-and-takedown regimes in relation to songs uploaded on YouTube.

Trademarks and Social Media: Towards Algorithmic Justice
Author: Danny Friedmann
Publisher: Edward Elgar Publishing
Trademarks and Social Media supports the protection of using the trademark logo correctly on social media. This thoughtful book demonstrates how protection can be implemented within the walled gardens of social media, through the reconciliation of unauthorised use of the trademark logo on social media alongside maintaining the right to exercise freedom of expression.

Legal conflicts between trademark holders, social media providers and internet users have become manifest in the light of wide-scale, unauthorised use of the trademark logo on social media in recent decades. Arguing for the protection of the trademark logo against unauthorised use in a commercial environment, this book explores why protection enforcement should be made automatic. A number of issues are discussed including the scalability of litigation on a case-by-case basis, and whether safe harbour provisions for online service providers should be substituted for strict liability. This book offers an unparalleled insight into the use of the trademark logo on social media, the consequences of incorrect use and practical solutions to achieve algorithmic justice.

Kritika: Essays on Intellectual Property, vol.1
Editors: Peter Drahos et al
Publisher: Edward Elgar Publishing
The field of intellectual property has broadened and deepened in so many ways, and at such pace, that there is a tendency for academic commentators to focus on the next new thing, or to react immediately to judicial developments, rather than to reflect more deeply on the greater themes of the discipline. The Kritika: Essays on Intellectual Property series is a series of books that are designed to fulfill this role by creating a forum for essays that take a critical, long-term approach to the field of intellectual property. Breaking down the barriers of specialization, and laying the foundation for an emergent critical scholarship, this first book in the series brings together the leading scholars in the field to reflect deeply on the current state and future of their discipline.
