About Copyright Law and the Information Society in Asia

The book takes a look at the six most important current topics arising from copyright law in the information society, and for each topic provides an in-depth introduction that compares the approaches taken in Europe and the US. Each topic is introduced by an expert, and the issues are then analysed in separate country reports representing nine Asian jurisdictions: China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines.



The six topics are:



The Expansion of Copyright Law and its Social Justification: Introduction by Reto Hilty, Max Planck Institute, Munich

Internet Trade, Digital Works and Parallel Imports: Introduction by Christopher Heath, European Patent Office, Munich

The Collective Exercise of Copyrights: Introduction by Kung Chung Liu, Academia Sinica, Taiwan

The Law on Anti-Circumvention and Digital Rights Management: Introduction by Andy Sun, National Chenchi University, Taipei, Taiwan and Zhi Wei, Peking University, Beijing

Copyright Contracts, Public Policy and Antitrust: Introduction by Estelle Derclaye, Queen Mary University of London

Reviews

“…it is an interesting and helpful format to have the practical effect of the implementation of various international laws and instruments at issue set down in reports from different jurisdictions…The structure of the book overall is helpful because it follows a natural progression with complementary issues effectively placed side by side…Discussion of these issues, backed up by evidence in the form of country reports from those Asian jurisdictions where they are most relevant, are the real draw-cards of this collection.” –  Louise Buckingham, Copyright Reporter, Vol 25 No 1

“…essential reading for anyone practising copyright law with an eye on Asia. It is also indispensable for anyone desiring a succinct and forceful analysis of the latest technology issues in copyright law.” –  Yee Fen Lim, Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice, Vol. 3, No. 1

“…consistently thought-provoking to say the least…Any advanced copyright researcher should have a copy.” –  Alice Lee, Singapore Journal of Legal Studies
