Publishing Law is a comprehensive guide to the law as it affects the publishing process. Written by the Copyright Counsel of the Publishers Association and a practising solicitor with many years experience of the publishing trade, this work will serve as a comprehensive handbook for all those who need a practical understanding of where and how the law may apply, including publishers, authors and agents, and all those involved with published material.

Hugh Jones and Christopher Benson address a range of key legal issues in the publishing process, including:

  • copyright, moral rights, commissioning and contracts, including online and e-book issues
  • libel and other legal risks such as negligence, privacy and obscenity
  • infringement and defences such as fair dealing, trademarks and passing off
  • consumer law, data protection, advertising and promotion, distribution and export

This fully updated fourth edition features:

  • full coverage of electronic rights and e-commerce issues
  • up to date coverage of changes in EU and UK legislation, including the Digital Economy Act 2010

Legal points are explained with reference to important statutes, cases and relevant trade practices. A revised glossary, lists of useful addresses and further reading are also provided.

Product Description

Review

"...this is a wonderful and indispensable book. Would that we had treatments of other aspects of publishing to this standard. There are a few, but not many. This book is probably the king." Anthony Watkinson, The Publishers Association

'Jones and Benson is the best book on publishing law available and is a must for all serious students of the profession as well as a necessary refresher and aide-memoire for all practising publishing professionals.' - Professor Iain Stevenson, Centre for Publishing, University College London, UK

'A highly useful and informative handbook to the world of publishing law' - Angus Phillips, Director, The Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies, Oxford Brookes University, UK

'You would imagine that any book with the word 'law' in the title might be guaranteed to be a dry read. Not so Publishing Law. The language is clear, the law made clear and above all it is an approachable text. This new edition explains the Digital Economy Act 2010, making it a 'must read' for all involved in publishing.' - Jane Moody, Head of Publications, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, UK

3.0 out of 5 stars Publishing Law review 22 Nov 2013
By R. Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Perhaps I didn't read the description well enough, but this is written for UK law. Since it differs slightly from USA law, I have to keep that in mind as I read it.
