Steal this music: how intellectual property law affects musical creativity

Athens : University of Georgia Press, c2006.

KF3035.D46 2006

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 and change.

Policing pregnancy : the law and ethics of obstetric conflict.

Aldershot, Hants, England ; Burlington, VT : Ashgate, c2005.

KF2910.G94M47 2005

“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.
