The Individual as Reformer

Show Summary Details


This chapter turns to the issue of copyright reform. Although the matter of recasting a Copyright 2.0 for the digital age is wrought with challenges, if offers suggestions to address some of the concerns regarding artistic progress, expressive rights, information access, and technological development raised in the course of the analysis. The reforms focus on three particular goals: restoring the balance between users of and rights-holders to copyrighted content; tempering the disparity between copyright law's treatment of sophisticated and unsophisticated parties; and recalibrating the relationship between transformative users and original creators of copyrighted content.

Keywords: copyright law; copyright reform; copyright protection; copyright users; copyright holders; creators
