Item description for Bound by Law: Tales from the Public Domain: By Day a Filmmaker, By Night She Fought for Fair Use! by Keith Aoki...
Long a rich reservoir of influences and materials for artists, the public domain is today under siege. Bound by Law shows budding artists the myriad ways they can become lost in the labyrinth of copyright and trademark law, while also issuing a call-to-arms for a new artist-friendly copyright regime. The book focuses on the dilemma of a young filmmaker who discovers that making a documentary about a day in the life of New York City is not as straightforward as she thinks. She's then taken on a history of our copyright labyrinth and is shown examples of recent filmmakers who refused to kow-tow to the dictates of corporate copright holders. Arguing that if artists do not fight back now the encroachment will continue, the authors of Bound by Law show artists how they can preserve their right to Fair Use and reassert their rightful hold over the public domain.
