Abstract

What can users do with works without obtaining the permission of a copyright owner? Greenleaf & Lindsay 'Public Rights: Copyright’s Public Domains' (Cambridge University Press, 2018) offers a unique perspective on copyright law in the form of a comprehensive international and comparative account of the copyright public domain. The book re-defines the copyright public domain, and identifies fifteen categories of public rights that constitute public rights and how their implementation differs between jurisdictions. Through this analysis, and by explaining how the public domain is an important source of human creativity and autonomy, the authors aim to restore balance to copyright policy debates, and to contribute to such debates by making practical law reform proposals. A chapter-by-chapter Overview of the book is at https://papers.ssrn.com/abstract_id=3245670

This Supplement consists of some of the sections of the book which, due to length constrains, had to be omitted, or only appear in summary form, in the book. These supplements appear at the paragraphs indicated in the following Table of Contents. In the book, their availability (or their extended form) in this Supplement is usually indicated in footnotes.

This edition of the Supplement is by-and-large restricted to materials available at 31 August 2017, as with the book, but there may be some points at which material from a later date is included. We may from time-to-time decide to issue updated versions of this Supplement via SSRN.
