Abstract:
"[This book provides a] perspective on one of the most active periods of copyright policy discourse in the United States since the enactment of the Copyright Act of 1976. [The author] documents and assesses the major issues confronting the U.S. copyright system today, offering an inside view of the Copyright Office's attempts at reform as part of a comprehensive account of the complex dynamics between key stakeholder communities, government and legislation."-- Provided by publisher.
