Gary A. Rosen. Unfair to genius: the strange and litigious career of Ira B. Arnstein. Oxford University Press, 2012.

KF228.A76R67 2012

 

Unfair to Genius tells the story of the long and tortured career of Ira B. Arnstein, the “unrivaled king of copyright infringement plaintiffs.” A musical prodigy in the late nineteenth century, Arnstein was a composer of moderate accomplishment, but by the mid-1920s his fortunes had reversed in the face of changing tastes and times. Convinced that he was the victim of a conspiracy to steal his music, Arnstein set out on a three-decade-long campaign to prove it, suing most of the major players in the popular music industry of his day. Although Arnstein never won a case, Rosen shows that the decisions rendered ultimately defined some of the basic parameters of copyright law.

 

 

 

Laura M. Henderson. Tortured reality: how media framing of waterboarding affects judicial independence. Eleven International Publishing, 2012.

K3367.H46 2012

 

Tortured Reality examines the use of the frames, or subjective narratives, in print news media and discusses the effect of media choices on judicial independence. The book asks whether the print news media’s framing of the practice of waterboarding influenced judicial opinions of this practice and if so, did this influence compromise judicial independence? Aimed at international human rights scholars, Tortured Reality looks at judicial independence as it is defined in international human rights documents and also in light of the democratic purpose behind judicial independence.
