An Associate's Guide to the Practice of Copyright Law authored by Meaghan Hemmings Kent guides associates through what is typically the most challenging part of their job: knowing where to find information and what specifically they need to complete a particular task or assignment. Written by a senior associate and a supervising partner, the authors rein in the work process for associates and give practice-oriented advice on important topics such as what questions to ask a client, what research to conduct, what elements must be met for various causes of action, the potential repercussions for various actions and the proper alternatives to be considered. The book also includes sample documents and pleadings, references to secondary sources and key cases in copyright law.
"Handy for any non-US copyright lawyer who spends hours on the phone to his US counterparts and sometimes struggles to comprehend issues which are alien to him."
--Jeremy Phillips, 1709 Copyright Blog
"The Guide would be an excellent resource for law firms to have in their libraries. New associates practicing copyright law would benefit by having the Guide available for ready reference, and general practitioners could occasionally access the Guide to brush up on specific areas." --Rachel L. Poe, Colorado Lawyer
"Perfect as a quick reference, comprehensively covering most common copyright issues from registration and transfer to cease and desist and take-down letters to litigation."
--Clifford D. Hyra, Patents 101
"This is a great desk handbook for anyone working with clients who are in an industry that produces copyrightable materials...well laid out and contains handy call-outs of practice tips all along the way. The book is structured so that it can be read by skipping around to the sections of interest and contains a very thorough review of the topics while pointing the way to more in-depth sources where needed." --Stephen Jenei, Patent Baristas
