Overview

Gordon (law, Boston U., US) and Watt (economic theory, U. Autónoma de Madrid, Spain) present a selection of 10 papers taken from a conference that was concerned with the economics of how copyright can be administered, managed, protected, and rewarded. The first few chapters look at the economics of copying, exploring such issues as music file sharing, pricing schemes as an alternative to legal protection, and the economic impact of copying on copyright holders. Later chapters consider contractual relationships between creators and distributors of copyright products. Others consider the legal environment of copyright protection, including the relationship between copyright and competition law and legal alternatives to copyright.
