View all copies of this ISBN edition:

As the expansion of the Internet and the digital formatting of all kinds of creative works move us further into the information age, intellectual property issues have become paramount. Computer programs costing thousands of research dollars are now copied in an instant. People who would recoil at the thought of stealing cars, computers, or VCRs regularly steal software or copy their favorite music from a friend's CD. Since the Web has no national boundaries, these issues are international concerns. The contributors-philosophers, legal theorists, and business scholars, among others-address questions such as: Can abstract ideas be owned? How does the violation of intellectual property rights compare to the violation of physical property rights? Can computer software and other digital information be protected? And how should legal systems accommodate the ownership of intellectual property in an information age? Intellectual Property is a lively examination of these and other issues, and an invaluable resource for librarians, lawyers, businesspeople, and scholars.

About the Author:

Adam D. Moore teaches philosophy at Ohio State University.


The anthology is a useful reference that any scholar interested in intellectual property and any decent library would want on their shelves. (Ned Hettinger)

A fine selection of insightful and provocative readings dealing with an important--and rapidly changing--area of the law, in the United States and the world. (David N. Mayer)

The essays in this volume . . . present insightful analyses from a wide variety of perspectives. (Sanford G. Thatcher)

This anthology will be particularly useful as a basic or supplemental text for law school courses in intellectual property as well as courses (both graduate and undergraduate) in related fields such as business and I definitely would use the anthology in both philosophy of law and computers courses . . . Covers issues of interest to students such as computer hacking and the World Wide Web. (Child, James W.)

This volume is a very welcome contribution to what is likely to be a lively field of academic and legal controversy for decades to come. It will contribute to a better understanding of intellectual property . . . Moore's anthology should be of interest not only to philosophers and lawyers but to those involved in the production of works typically thought to be protected by intellectual property rights. (Hubin, Donald C.)
