Copyright User Rights, Contracts, and the Erosion of Property

Book Cover - Copyright User Rights: Contracts and the Erosion of PropertyPascale Chapdelaine, Copyright User Rights: Contracts and the Erosion of Property, (Oxford University Press, 2017).

Abstract: The only book to positively define what copyright user rights are and should be, and why.

Addresses contemporary issues of tangibility and intangibility in copyright law, with reference to new kinds of copyright works such as e-books, iTunes, online software, digital-release films. Uses practical real-world examples to illustrate the dysfunctional nature of user rights currently, and the remedies that might be introduced.

Takes a multi-territorial approach, considering the law of the European Union, United States, Canada, Australia, and EU Member States such as the UK and France.
