Copyright was originally designed when type was still made out of lead. What do we need to know in today’s era of ebooks, multimedia, apps, and the cloud? After an overview of copyright concepts, we will focus on understanding how copyright applies to the issues of new media and new content delivery methods. We will talk about Creative Commons and noncommercial use, compare the borderless internet with the territoriality of copyright, and review some of the key cases that have shaped the application of copyright in the digital age.
