Abstract

Some intellectual property colleagues recently urged me to post this article on SSRN. I wrote it circa mid-90’s when information still wanted to be free and the predominant technology was still file transfer protocol. I suppose this piece has stood the test of time because it was one of the first legal academic pieces to address the copyright implications of Internet works. Today in 2010, we are still grappling with the collaborative, dynamic and entrepreneurial characteristics of digital networked content. However, now it is created and distributed through different intermediaries such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.

Keywords: author, copyright, digital networks, Internet, joint author, joint work, work
