Steal this music: how intellectual property law affects musical creativity
Athens : University of Georgia Press, c2006.
Music copyright has dramatically
expanded since the 1990’s. The law now enables music copyright holders
to enjoin public performance, broadcasting, the making of sound recordings
in any medium, and, in many jurisdictions, the sharing of music with the
aid of digital technology. More and more performances are considered public,
and the reproduction of even short samples of a song is potentially an
infringement if the original work is recognizable. In this volume the
author explores how attempts to combat music piracy are adversely impacting
musicians and composers. Demers demonstrates that the intellectual property
provisions that apply to music do not merely prohibit forms of music expression
and modes of consumption. The interpretation of these provisions actually
helps to shape the field of musical forms available to our society. In
sum, this volume is a study of shifting cultural values and new musical
practices generated in relation to a legal climate characterized by uncertainty
Policing pregnancy : the law and ethics of obstetric conflict.
Aldershot, Hants, England ; Burlington, VT : Ashgate, c2005.
“In the past two decades, a series of high-profile court cases in both the UK and the US have highlighted a novel problem for both medical law and society. In intervening in situations when pregnant women and those charged with their care do not agree on management options or appropriate behaviour, the law has been forced to try to reconcile the often competing demands made in the name of foetal “rights”, maternal autonomy and medical authority. Society’s interests, for instance in preserving life and safeguarding future citizens, may also be brought to bear.
This book examines the legal
and ethical background to such cases and attempts to give an overview
of the development of the law as it affects pregnant women; the current
legal position, and potential future complications…. It examines the legal
principles underpinning such aspects as medical care in pregnancy and
during childbirth, patient autonomy, foetal status and potential maternal
liability, as well as the operation of these principles at the practical
level of the doctor’s office, clinic or obstetric ward….” ---Preface.
