9780415575171: Publishing Law

Publishing Law is a comprehensive guide to the law as it affects the publishing process. Written by the Copyright Counsel of the Publishers Association and a practising solicitor with many years experience of the publishing trade, this work will serve as a comprehensive handbook for all those who need a practical understanding of where and how the law may apply, including publishers, authors and agents, and all those involved with published material.

Hugh Jones and Christopher Benson address a range of key legal issues in the publishing process, including:

  • copyright, moral rights, commissioning and contracts, including online and e-book issues
  • libel and other legal risks such as negligence, privacy and obscenity
  • infringement and defences such as fair dealing, trademarks and passing off
  • consumer law, data protection, advertising and promotion, distribution and export

This fully updated fourth edition features:

  • full coverage of electronic rights and e-commerce issues
  • up to date coverage of changes in EU and UK legislation, including the Digital Economy Act 2010

Legal points are explained with reference to important statutes, cases and relevant trade practices. A revised glossary, lists of useful addresses and further reading are also provided.

About the Author:

Hugh Jones is Copyright Counsel to The Publishers Association. A qualified solicitor, he worked in publishing for fifteen years, for law publishers Sweet and Maxwell and reference publishers Macmillan Press, before practising for eight years as a publishing and copyright lawyer at city law firm Taylor Joynson Garrett (now Taylor Wessing). He writes and lectures regularly, and is Treasurer of the British Copyright Council.

Christopher Benson is a solicitor at City law firm Taylor Wessing. He has been practising for over ten years as an intellectual property lawyer. He has considerable experience in the fields of publishing and copyright and also advises on all aspects of intellectual property law, both contentious and non-contentious, including copyright protection, trade mark protection and passing off, brand management, licensing, merchandising, sponsorship, franchising and advertising. He is a regular writer and lecturer on intellectual property matters.

Review:

"...this is a wonderful and indispensable book. Would that we had treatments of other aspects of publishing to this standard. There are a few, but not many. This book is probably the king." Anthony Watkinson, The Publishers Association

'Jones and Benson is the best book on publishing law available and is a must for all serious students of the profession as well as a necessary refresher and aide-memoire for all practising publishing professionals.' - Professor Iain Stevenson, Centre for Publishing, University College London, UK

'A highly useful and informative handbook to the world of publishing law' - Angus Phillips, Director, The Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies, Oxford Brookes University, UK

'You would imagine that any book with the word 'law' in the title might be guaranteed to be a dry read. Not so Publishing Law. The language is clear, the law made clear and above all it is an approachable text. This new edition explains the Digital Economy Act 2010, making it a 'must read' for all involved in publishing.' - Jane Moody, Head of Publications, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, UK
