In this book, David Vaver examines how the modern law of copyright and moral rights is coping with the explosive growth in new technologies. He provides a detailed, authoritative analysis of changes to the Copyright Act and their impact on copyright holders and users, including educational institutions, libraries, and archives.

Copyright Law is written in a lively non-technical style. It examines in depth issues such as: What does copyright protect? What rights do owners have? What new rights have been introduced and how do they affect the public? What rights do users have? What are moral rights and how are they enforced?
