This accessible and innovative book examines to what extent copyright protects a range of subjects which are engaged in the creation and management of literary and artistic works, and how such subjects use copyright to protect their interests.

Offering a complementary analysis, The Subjects of Literary and Artistic Copyright explores how copyright regulates the production and management of literature and art. The book examines the creators of literature and art, as well as market operators such as publishers and “managers” including museums, galleries, and universities. The perspectives offered cover a diverse range of subjects, and confront the regular contradictions and conflicts that occur within literary and artistic copyright interests. The chapters illustrate, via historical and empirical analysis, that established practices and traditional approaches to the management of copyright need to be revisited, in order to be more aligned with current social and technological frameworks.

Providing a starting point for future research paths on copyright practices in art and literature, this insightful book will be of interest to legal academics looking to expand their knowledge of literary and artistic copyright. Law professionals with interests in intellectual property and art law will also benefit from its novel approach.
Critical Acclaim
‘The Subjects of Literary and Artistic Copyright edited by Enrico Bonadio and Cristiana Sappa looks at copyright aspects of art and literature through the eyes of their main stakeholders, grouped in the volume in two categories: creators and intermediaries/ managers. Using historical and empirical analysis, this great collection revisits many assumptions about the creative process and the current management of copyrighted works. A must read for everyone interested in the complex relationships of all the actors involved in the process of cultural production.’
– Christophe Geiger, Luiss Guido Carli University, Italy

‘From traditional forms of authorship to the most contemporary ones, from the romantic authors to institutions whose participation in copyright management is less known – while revisiting digital challenges to the establishments that have always played an important role in the dissemination of works – this book offers a rich panorama of perspectives that inform the development of copyright law today. A decidedly modern take on copyright stakeholders.’
– Ysolde Gendreau, Université de Montréal, Canada

‘This book focuses on traditional categories of creators and stakeholders of works of literature and art including publishers, libraries, museums, galleries, auction houses and universities. Literary works and artistic works are types of copyright works that not only have inspired each other but also inspired copyright in general. This book offers a fresh look at the roles of stakeholders and conflicting interests in copyright law, it is a “must read” for all those engaging in copyright law.’
– Irini Stamatoudi, University of Nicosia, Cyprus
