Copyright And Popular Media: Liberal Villains And Technological Change
New book on media piracy by Trajce Cvetkovski - with strong focus on the popular music industry
Copyright governance is in a state of flux because the boundaries between legal and illegal consumption have blurred. Trajce Cvetkovski interrogates the disorganizational effects of piracy and emerging technologies on the political economy of copyright in popular music, film and gaming industries.
In addition to the above, this book examines the nature of the traditionally closed-shop music industry, and its monopolistic practices (as enjoyed by a few majors). It analyses the once-happy days corporate citizens in the 20th Century enjoyed in an era of absolute legal and technological control. It then compares the more sombre 21st Century challenges in a post-Napster, Kazaa and LimeWire world where technological change has created a new reality. The book follows on from Cvetkovski's 2007 text, "The Political Economy of the Music Industry". The publisher is Palgrave Macmillan
