The landscape of copyright law has changed dramatically since the last edition of Understanding Copyright Law in 2005.

This new 5th edition of Understanding Copyright Law has incorporated all the recent case law and legislative developments, focusing on the challenges of the digital age. Written with clarity and precision, this 5th edition of Understanding Copyright Law remains the most accessible and comprehensive text for students of copyright law.

Academic Paper from the year 2014 in the subject English - Literature, Works, Ranchi University , language: English, abstract: Inroduction. William Shakespeare’s classic ‘Othello’ is often seen as a concoction and identification of various themes, cultures and personalities. First published in 1622, and then in the First Folio (edited by Heminges and Condell) in 1623, with differences in the application of words persisting in the two consecutive editions. The play is one of the five major tragedies of Shakespeare, apart from ‘Hamlet’, ‘Macbeth’, ‘Antony And Cleopatra’ and ‘King Lear’, and is also one of the most popular. Interestingly, ‘Othello’ is perceived from a number of prospects, including noble versus Moorish, military versus civilian, Christian versus Heathen, good versus evil, appearance versus reality, loyalty versus treachery and civilized versus barbarian. But the present essay endeavours to show the play as Shakespeare’s careful scrutinization of the two most common phenomenons- faith and honour.

Perhaps one of the most practical elements of the technical communication classroom is the client-based project. Students work with the intellectual property of their client and others to solve communication and design problems. However, complex legalities--copyright law--accompany intellectual property. Due to the nature of our profession, it is paramount that technical communication students understand copyright law and how to navigate its implications in the realms of academia and the professional workplace. Therefore, the study at hand investigates copyright explanations in common technical communication textbooks and how well technical communication students and faculty understand those explanations. To fill the gap in the current literature, 22 technical communication students and six faculty members read passages from technical communication textbooks and answered survey questions about what they read. Using Stanley Fish's (2003) idea of an interpretive community as a theoretical framework, results indicate the participants came to similar conclusions about what they read in the passages, revealing outlets for improving and revising copyright explanations to facilitate understanding. Results also show students lack understanding of copyright law.
