Peter Baldwin. The copyright wars: three centuries of trans-Atlantic battle. Princeton University Press, 2014.

K1420.5.B359 2014

 

In our current debates about online streaming services and bootleg DVDs, we sometimes forget that controversies over copyright law are nothing new. This painstakingly researched volume traces the history of copyright from its origins in the eighteenth century to the present, and examines the competing philosophical arguments that have been used to justify it.

 

 

 

 

Robert A. Katzmann. Judging statutes. Oxford University Press, 2014.

KF425.K38 2014

 

In this book, Katzmann—Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit—makes the case for a method of statutory interpretation that looks to the purpose of a law rather than its text alone. He discusses the uses of legislative history, and engages with the arguments of strict “textualists” like Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
