From eighteenth-century copyright law, to current-day copyright issues on the internet, to tomorrow's "celestial jukebox"—a digital repository of books, movies, and music available on demand—Paul Goldstein presents a thorough examination of the challenges facing copyright owners and users. One of the nation's leading authorities on intellectual property law, Goldstein offers an engaging, readable, and intelligent analysis of the effect of copyright on American politics, economy, and culture. Goldstein presents and analyzes key legal battles, including Supreme Court decisions on home taping and 2 Live Crew's contested sampling of Roy Orbison's "Pretty Woman." In this revised edition, the author expands the discussion to cover electronic media, including an examination of recent Napster litigation, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and the vexed Secure Digital Music Initiative, under which record companies attempted to develop effective encryption standards for their products. Praise for the first edition: "A clever and vibrant book that traces copyright history from the invention of the printing press through current challenges to copyright from new technologies . . . . Most compelling [on] multimedia technologies." —Sabra Chartrand, The New York Times "This eminent authority writes with clarity, lucidity and a wry sense of humor about a subject whose complexities can be daunting." —Jonathan Kirsch, Los Angeles Times "A wonderfully American tale of how law, literature, politics and megabucks intersect." —William Petrocelli, San Francisco Chronicle

Most books about film production assume that you have an idea and a script to shoot. Most screenwriting books are geared to how to write a script that you can sell to Hollywood (as though the authors of these books had the slightest clue) and do not take into consideration that you might be shooting the script yourself, possibly with your own money. This book is about how to write a script properly that you can rationally shoot, how to shoot it, how to finish it, how to sell it, and also how to get it shown.

Over the past few decades, a wave of immigration has turned New York into a microcosm of the Americas and enhanced its role as the crossroads of the English- and Spanish-speaking worlds. Yet far from being an alien group within a "mainstream" and supposedly pure "Anglo" America, people referred to as Hispanics or Latinos have been part and parcel of New York since the beginning of the city's history. They represent what Walt Whitman once celebrated as "the Spanish element of our nationality." Hispanic New York is the first anthology to offer a comprehensive view of this multifaceted heritage. Combining familiar materials with other selections that are either out of print or not easily accessible, Claudio Iván Remeseira makes a compelling case for New York as a paradigm of the country's Latinoization. His anthology mixes primary sources with scholarly and journalistic essays on history, demography, racial and ethnic studies, music, art history, literature, linguistics, and religion, and the authors range from historical figures, such as José Martí, Bernardo Vega, or Whitman himself, to contemporary writers, such as Paul Berman, Ed Morales, Virginia Sánchez Korrol, Roberto Suro, and Ana Celia Zentella. This unique volume treats the reader to both the New York and the American experience, as reflected and transformed by its Hispanic and Latino components.

Das Dumme am Leben ist, dass man eines Tages tot ist

Das Leben ist einfach, tragisch und schön», schreibt David Shields. Der Gedanke, dass alles, was lebt, vergänglich ist, kann auf eine seltsame Weise befreiend sein. Dieses Buch erzählt davon, wie alles auf den Tod zuläuft. Paradox ist, dass der Leser dabei geradezu in eine Leichtigkeit des Seins gerät. Es geht in dem Buch nur scheinbar um den Tod. In Wirklichkeit geht es um das Leben. Was bedeutet der Tod für das Leben? Selten ist über diese Frage so melancholisch-humorvoll und ehrlich meditiert worden wie in diesem Buch. Nüchtern berichtet Shields von den biologischen Fakten unserer körperlichen Existenz, beschreibt die Entwicklung des Embryos im Mutterleib, erklärt, was im Körper passiert, wenn wir altern und warum Männer wie Frauen tiefe Stimmen lieben. Gleichzeitig verwebt er diesen naturwissenschaftlichen Bericht mit kulturgeschichtlichen Betrachtungen, philosophischen Spekulationen und mitunter sehr persönlichen Anekdoten. Und nicht zuletzt erzählt er mit viel Witz die Geschichte seines Vaters Milton, der im Alter von 97 Jahren immer noch von einer überbordenden, ja beunruhigenden Vitalität ist und dessen ganzes Leben im Grunde ein Kampf gegen die eigene Vergänglichkeit war, und von Natalie, seiner kleinen Tochter, die das Drama des Lebens noch vor sich hat. Shields hat ein erstaunliches Buch geschrieben, das uns dazu verführt, die Bedeutung unseres kurzen und rätselhaften Aufenthalts auf dieser Erde auf eine ganz neue und unerwartete Weise zu überdenken. «Ein Juwel von einem Buch.» Thomas Lynch, The Boston Globe
