Professor Jane C. Ginsburg and her co-authors have added new cases, excerpts, and textual material in the 8th edition of Copyright: Cases and Materials, including analysis of issues arising in an era of rapidly evolving information technology.

This latest edition addresses new developments in rights concerning online and digital activities, the first-sale doctrine, and the constitutionality of restoring copyright in foreign intellectual property, among other issues. It also includes an updated and revised chapter examining fair use both in the digital age and in more traditional copyright contexts.

The book, which offers questions and problems aimed at generating classroom discussion, also devotes significant attention to the issue of secondary liability and safe harbors for internet service providers.
