Copy This Book is an artist’s guide to copyright, written for makers. At once practical and critical, the book guides readers through the concepts underlying copyright and how they apply in practice. It does so within one compact, contemporary and readable volume, packed with striking examples and boasting attractive, intuitive design.

Copy This Book provides answers to questions like: How do you obtain copyright? For what work? And for how long? How does copyright traverse mediums? And how do you go about integrating the work of others within your own?

Copy This Book also details the concepts of authorship and original creation that determine today’s legal systems. It provides the conceptual tools to participate in the contemporary debate about intellectual property.
