US Copyright Law Timeline and Overview

Copyright law is the foundation of the book industry, as it is with the other original content-based media channels  that we will be discussing this semester. Taking a quick look at a timeline of American copyright law will aid your understanding of some issues regarding intellectual property that are found in our current international trade disputes. It will be useful if you are thinking about your own rights as a content creator. You are encouraged to read in depth if you are considering a business-side career in media, perhaps as an agent, an A&R person, as a lawyer, or in another position where it will be important to understand legal control of creative content.
