"...a provocative and balanced collection that examines both the current theories and the practice of intellectual property protection."
"It is critical that we begin to evaluate the health of the intellectual property landscape. Who benefits from recent trends in copyright aggregation and extension, and how do these functioning models compare with the vision of the founders? Do these changes have an impact on innovation, imagination, and competition, and, if so, is that impact a positive or negative one? As we move forward it is critical that artists and citizens publicly engage these questions so that legal campaigns brought forth in their names serve the ultimate goals of creation and reward. This book serves as a starting point for that investigation."
