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 we will be discussing this semester. A 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 also be a useful reference be 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.
