From the Author:

In this 2nd edition of Licensing Digital Content, I deal with new technologies as well as further global issues. In addition, I added new FAQs on licensing. The book is intended to provide you with an overview of digital licensing, from a practical perspective, in plain English. This book is a "zoomed in" book based on a chapter in an earlier book, Digital Property: Currency of the 21st Century. This book also complements my other books including Canadian Copyright Law and Digital Licensing Strategies for Canadian Museums. Issues in Licensing Digital Content are also discussed in many articles I and other professionals write and publish in The Copyright & New Media Law Newsletter.
