Copyright Remedies: A Litigator S Guide to Damages and Other Relief (Paperback)
Copyright damages incorporate some unusual aspects, and foresight is required to take full advantage of (or to defend against) the range of available remedies. Copyright Remedies: A Litigator's Guide to Damages and Other Relief is a concise, practical guide for any litigator prosecuting, defending, or evaluating a copyright infringement lawsuit or claim under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), any practitioner responsible for a copyrighted work that may become the subject of litigation, and any attorney advising clients on copyright and DMCA issues. The authors, both experienced litigators with wide experience in copyright and intellectual property cases, explain the range of remedies available and provide numerous checklists and analysis of subcategories of damages. The information they offer is both readable and thorough, citing key cases as well as unusual ones and identifying significant differences among the circuits. Chapters are organized to give a quick overview of the available remedies, and each provides a checklist of available subcategories of damages or more detail on the elements and important considerations for each particular remedy.
