This book, the third in the series, follows the themes considered in the first two volumes and brings together perspectives on copyright from law, politics, economics, cultural studies and social theory in an effort to forge a truly coherent and meaningful agenda for the future of copyright.

New Directions in Copyright Law, Volume 3 comprises thoughtful, critical and often challenging contributions from an international, multidisciplinary network of scholars who continue the exploration of the role, function and theoretical basis of copyright law. Themes such as the developments in related rights and rights neighbouring on copyright are discussed as well as the protection of traditional knowledge and culture.

Playing a leading role in stimulating international research and debate about the future of the copyright system, this book will be of great interest to copyright scholars and copyright stakeholders.
Critical Acclaim
‘The essays in these volumes are clearly written and of readable length. . . the latest installments in the New Directions series will be of particular use to researchers interested in traditional cultural expressions and trade law but other scholars of copyright and media will find papers to interest them.’
– Daithí Mac Síthigh, Scripted

‘Overall, this is an excellent collection and each contribution is interesting and informative.’
– Louise Buckingham, Copyright Reporter

Acclaim for volume 1:
‘Copyright is increasingly broad in scope and the range of perspectives that can be applied to study it is equally wide – not just IP law but legal philosophy, economics, cultural studies, ethnography, legal history and political science are all potentially relevant approaches to dissecting the copyright octopus. This book includes examples of all these approaches. It makes fascinating reading. It is also a valuable contribution to the current debate about the future development of copyright law.’
– Simon Stokes, European Intellectual Property Review
