Lumina (Summer 2010) iss.2 p.252-260 Author: Wilson, Jennifer PhysDes: Article Subject: DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY; DISTRIBUTION; COPYRIGHT; LAW AND THE CINEMA. AUSTRALIA Summary: New digital techologies allow the creation of new forms of content, including games, websites, mobile and interactive stories.

Hollywood's copyright wars : from Edison to the internet / Peter Decherney

Call No: 432.4 DEC Author: Decherney, Peter Source: US Place: New York Publisher: Columbia University Press PubDate: 2013 PhysDes: xii, 287 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm Subject: AUTHORSHIP; COPYRIGHT; COPYRIGHT.

Though much of Hollywood's engagement with the law occurs offstage, in the larger theater of copyright, many of Hollywood's valued treasures - from Modern Times (1936) to Star Wars (1977) - cannot be fully understood without appreciating their legal controversies. Peter Decherney shows that the history of intellectual property in Hollywood has not always mirrored the evolution of the law and recounts these extralegal solutions and their impact on American media and culture." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Contains list of illustrations and index ISBN: 9780231159470 More info

It began in the middle of 1977 with what seemed a serious but completely contained incident of embezzlement: David Begelman's forgery of Cliff Robertson's name on a $10,000 check. But by the time a year had gone by, the lives of these men and dozens of other very powerful Hollywood figures would be engulfed in a holocaust of controversy and pain that would rock the foundations of the world's most glamorous industry for years to come."
