With stimulating questions, comprehensive notes, and teachable cases as its hallmarks, Gorman and Ginsburg's Copyright serves as the authoritative law school casebook for the study of copyright law. The book's many well-chosen recent decisions cover issues such as the Napster case, the fair use case, secondary liability, circumvention of technological protections, interpretation of pre-digital licenses, Internet transmission of music, distance education, and international issues. Traditional issues include protection for government-authored and incorporated works, joint ownership and community property, and the duration of copyright and the constitutionality of its extensions. Other topics include the World Trade Organization ruling on the Fairness in Music Licensing Act and developing theories about preemption of state law.

The Sixth Edition has been comprehensively updated to take account of new judicial, legislative, and scholarly developments in all areas of intellectual property law--trademark, copyright, and patent, and also idea protection, trade secrets, right of publicity, and other areas. It provides cases and notes on emerging First Amendment limitations on federal and state intellectual property rights and addresses emerging trends in Lanham Act section 43(a) and newly revised provisions of federal anti-dilution law. Other highlighted topics include the Internet and domain names, secondary liability, safe harbors, and anti-circumvention provisions; expanded coverage of software protection and business method patents; and notes comparing U.S. intellectual property doctrines to rules in other countries. In the Sixth Edition the materials on trademark and unfair competition have been reorganized, as have the materials on federal preemption of state law.
