Mark Rose uses case studies to show how gender and gentility have influenced the self-presentation of authors in court and how the personal styles, public personas, and histories of novelists, dramatists, poets, photographers, and cartoonists have influenced the development of legal doctrine around issues of copyright.

The notion of the author as the creator and therefore the first owner of a work is deeply rooted both in our economic system and in our concept of the individual. But this concept of authorship is modern. Mark Rose traces the formation of copyright in eighteenth-century Britain--and in the process highlights still current issues of intellectual property. Authors and Owners is at once a fascinating look at an important episode in legal history and a significant contribution to literary and cultural history.

Abraham Drassinower presents a new way to balance the needs of creators and users of authored works. Disentangling copyright theory from its focus on the economic value of a work as a commodity, he views a work instead as a communicative act. Infringement, according to this perspective, is an unauthorized appropriation of another’s speech.

Beginning with Thomas Edison's aggressive copyright disputes and concluding with recent lawsuits against YouTube, Hollywood's Copyright Wars follows the struggle of the film, television, and digital media industries to influence and adapt to copyright law. Though much of Hollywood's engagement with the law occurs offstage, in the larger theater of copyright, many of Hollywood's most 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.

As surveyor of the King's Works, Inigo Jones was responsible for the visual aspects of the masques performed at the various royal palaces, and both he and his pupil John Webb designed a number of regular theatres at Court. This book gathers together all of the drawings for playhouses which they prepared for the drama proper, excluding the more specialised designs for the Court masque. The designs are close to the mainstream of theatre development in the seventeenth century, ranging from the Cockpit in Drury Lane, 1616, to the Hall Theatre at Whitehall half a century later. Some of the designs are newly identified; others are reinterpreted, and many individual drawings are reassigned. As a result Jones and Webb are established as clearly the most effective London theatre builders of the seventeenth century, at least as influential in the architecture of playhouses and stages as they were in the more painterly traditions of scene design.
