Synopsis

Publishing Law is a comprehensive guide to the law as it affects the publishing process. Written by the Copyright Counsel of the Publishers Association and a practising solicitor with many years experience of the publishing trade, this work will serve as a comprehensive handbook for all those who need a practical understanding of where and how the law may apply, including publishers, authors and agents, and all those involved with published material.

Hugh Jones and Christopher Benson address a range of key legal issues in the publishing process, including:

  • copyright, moral rights, commissioning and contracts, including online and e-book issues
  • libel and other legal risks such as negligence, privacy and obscenity
  • infringement and defences such as fair dealing, trademarks and passing off
  • consumer law, data protection, advertising and promotion, distribution and export

This fully updated fourth edition features:

  • full coverage of electronic rights and e-commerce issues
  • up to date coverage of changes in EU and UK legislation, including the Digital Economy Act 2010

Legal points are explained with reference to important statutes, cases and relevant trade practices. A revised glossary, lists of useful addresses and further reading are also provided.
