The public domain is under siege, and James Boyle explains why and how we must protect it.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Hannah | 2/6/2014

    " Ok, a book about copyright probably doesn't sound very interesting to the non-lawyer, non-librarian audience. But, as James Boyle argues in this very accessible book, issues of intellectual property rights are becoming increasingly relevant to the average person going about her way absorbing and creating contemporary culture. Whether you're interested in music, literature, or biotechnology, you should read this book. "

    " Interesting book - liked his premise towards the end where he compared the commons movement to the early stages of the environmental movement. "

    " A very accessible book on the strange course intellectual property law has taken over the past 20 years. While Boyle has a clear agenda about the needs of copyright, the book provides strong historical reasons for his agenda and never gets bogged down in discussion of legal minutiae. "
