Product description

Copyright issues regularly arise in business. Obvious examples include developing a website, writing an advert or preparing a PowerPoint presentation. Playing or showing a sound recording, film or communication work in public must also be approached carefully. These are only some of the copyright issues that organisations in the commercial sector confront.

Copyright is also a very serious matter in the education sector. Programme developers, lecturers, deans and administrators will find this book useful when working on curricula, course materials, webinars and lectures, both in print and electronic formats.

Copyright Law Made Easy sets out the practical essentials of copyright law in New Zealand. It is designed to assist with protecting rights in original works and avoiding legal issues when copying or adapting original works belonging to others.
