National copyright rules on protectable subject matter, ownership, term, and rights are covered in detail and compared from country to country, as are topics on moral rights and neighboring rights. Separate sections cover such important topics asterritoriality, national treatment and choice of law, as well as the treaty and trade arrangements that underlie substantive copyright norms.International Copyright is an indispensable reference work for professionals involved with international copyright transactions or litigation, and is essential reading for copyright scholars.
