‘Ideal for students and scholars seeking to improve their understanding of copyright law in an international context, Primer on International Copyright and Related Rights discusses rights of reproduction, translation, distribution, rental, resale, public performance, and much more. A "must have" for law school libraries and serious students of international copyright regulations, as well as professionals in the field.’
– Midwest Book Review
‘This book will definitely become a vital source for courses on international intellectual property. It is not only well organised, but is excellently presented. I think the book should become a source for basic copyright courses in which academics mainly deal with local laws. This book contributes to existing literature. True, it is a primer, but a primer that does not only make international copyright law accessible to students and practitioners. I think it also shows the great success of the international intellectual property system and why we need to remain attentive to the international community and appraise its achievements.’
– Lior Zemer, European Intellectual Property Review
'International copyright and related rights take on an ever more important role. These areas are known for their complexity but in this excellent addition to legal science, Jørgen Blomqvist simplifies the essence of these areas. The book provides a complete Primer to these areas and it is written as a narrative that draws the reader into the topic. One becomes attracted to its complexities and their implications. This book is essential reading for all of hose that never thought of becoming copyright aficionados.'
– Paul Torremans, Professor of Intellectual Property Law, University of Nottingham, UK
‘As well as practitioners, academics and students, government officials charged with decision-making responsibilities in this area of law will find this impressively scholarly examination of international copyright a useful, indeed an essential, purchase.’
