Paul F. Rothstein, Myrna S. Raeder, David Crump. Evidence in a nutshell. 6th ed. Thompson Reuters, 2012.

KF8935.R6 2012

 

This book is co-authored by Professor David Crump. The newest (restyled) version of the Federal Rules of Evidence, reproduced in the appendix, is the anchor of this book, with some state variations noted where important. The text summarizes significant U.S. Supreme Court decisions, including the latest Confrontation Clause cases; additional leading cases; forefront expert and scientific evidence developments; and principal schools of evidentiary thought. It includes practical implementation as well as scholarly approaches, and pays attention to the litigation process as a whole and interdisciplinary cross-pollination where helpful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kembrew McLeod, Peter DiCola. Creative license : the law and culture of digital sampling. Duke University Press, 2011.

KF3035.M38 2011

 

This book puts digital sampling into historical, cultural, and legal context. It describes hip-hop during its sample-heavy golden age in the 1980s and early 1990s, the lawsuits that shaped U.S. copyright law on sampling, and the labyrinthine licensing process that musicians must now navigate. The authors argue that the current system for licensing samples is inefficient and limits creativity. Observing that the same dynamics that create problems for remixers now reverberate throughout all culture industries, the authors conclude by examining ideas for reform.
