Synopsis

With an introduction to UK and EU law, full coverage of electronic rights and e-commerce issues and detailed coverage of changes in UK and EU legislation, this third edition of Publishing Law continues in its status as a comprehensive guide to the law as it affects the publishing process.

Hugh Jones and Christopher Benson address a range of key legal issues in the publishing process and explain legal points with reference to important statutes, cases and relevant trade practices. The issues include:

  • copyright, moral rights, commissioning and contracts, including online access and ebooks
  • libel and other legal risks such as negligence, privacy and obscenity
  • infringement and defences such as fair dealing; trade marks and passing off
  • consumer law, data protection, advertising and promotion, distribution and export.

This work is a comprehensive handbook for publishers, authors and agents, and anyone who needs a practical understanding of where and how the law may apply.
