  • The first book to address the complex relationship between modernism and intellectual property law
  • Contains an appendix of Frequently Asked Questions that will aid anyone who wishes to navigate the difficulties of copyright and fair use
  • Covers the major copyright clashes of the twentieth century, including those centered on James Joyce, Charlie Chaplin, and J. D. Salinger
