9780974155319: Bound By Law? (Tales from the Public Domain)

A documentary is being filmed. A cell phone rings, playing the "Rocky" theme song. The filmmaker is told she must pay $10,000 to clear the rights to the song. Can this be true? "Eyes on the Prize", the great civil rights documentary, was pulled from circulation because the filmmakers' rights to music and footage had expired. What's going on here? It's the collision of documentary filmmaking and intellectual property law, and it's the inspiration for this comic book. Follow its heroine Akiko as she films her documentary, and navigates the twists and turns of intellectual property. Why do we have copyrights? What's "fair use"? Bound By Law reaches beyond documentary film to provide a commentary on the most pressing issues facing law, art, property and an increasingly digital world of remixed culture.

Book Description:

"A fantastic approach for introducing students to copyright law . . . and a must for professional development."

From the Publisher:

Additional Praise for "Bound By Law"

"Documentary filmmakers should read a new comic book called Bound By Law that tackles the legal pitfalls of copyright. Why? Because history hangs in the balance." -Fiona Morgan, Wired News

"Will a spiky-haired, camera-toting super-heroine... restore decency and common sense to the world of creative endeavor?... 'Bound By Law' exercises the fair-use doctrine in a romp through popular culture." -Paul Bonner, The Herald-Sun

"Look, up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's Akiko, the fair-use freedom fighter! Akiko is heroine of a new comic book...created by three law profs who worry that a growing 'permissions culture' is hurting creativity by overprotecting it." -William Triplett, Variety Weekly

"Cornel West broke new ground for academics when he made a rap album while teaching at Harvard. Now three law professors have cranked out a comic book, in an effort to explain copyright law to young filmmakers and other creative types." -Daniel Lyons, Forbes Magazine
