Book Review : Copyfight: The Future of Intellectual Property in the Information Age

Copy Fights: The Future of Intellectual Property in the Information Age was a book I required on a paper for my degree. The book has a selection of writers, both pro and anti on digital copyright. With such a large selection of writers, the book can be confusing. Don't get me wrong, its even handed etc, but very American based. I prefer Lessig Future of Idea's or Siva Vaidhyanathan The Anarchist in the Library. But then, I think this underlines my left wing slance rather than Copyfights.
If you want a good read on copyright issue's in the USA, then this is your book. If you wanna read something for digital rights essay, then this is it. 7 out 0f 10.
