Críticas:

`Mark Greenberg's Comic Art, Creativity and the Law outlines the protective, and often restrictive, aspects of the relationship between the law and the comic book industry. Greenberg's text is a very accessible, even enjoyable read. While Comic Art, Creativity and the Law is fascinating, even compelling, its principle audience is entertainment comic book creators, attorneys, and fans.' -- Allen Berry, Technical Communication `Talk about an interesting project! This really quite riveting book from Edward Elgar's Law and Entrepreneurship series explores a not very much explored area of the law; that is the effect, for better or worse, of the law on creativity and the creative process. . . While the book could be considered a guide to `the law of comics', it is more than that. There is much analysis and commentary on the history, structure and modes of comic art, after which, the discussion turns to two legal doctrines: contract and copyright law. The impact of tax and obscenity laws is also discussed. . . With the ten pages `table of authorities' and extensive footnoting, the book is a carefully researched academic study as well as a fascinating read. No doubt it will end up as an exceptionally well-thumbed volume in practitioners' libraries on both sides of the Atlantic - and fans anywhere, of cartoons and comics will love it.' -- The Barrister Magazine `Marc Greenberg combines his professional expertise and deep knowledge of comics history to provide the first book-length treatment of the subject of law as it applies to comics. . . an invaluable resource for understanding the issues.' -- Rob Salkowitz, ICV2 `Comic Art, Creativity and the Law is a highly welcome addition to the literature on the development of comic art. The book stands out in its knowledge of the comic industry and analysis of the legal challenges confronting creative artists. You will enjoy reading it whether you are an art law specialist or a Spiderman fan.' -- Peter K. Yu, Drake University Law School, US `In comics, justice always prevails, but the business of comics is a lot trickier. Marc Greenberg combines the expertise of a legal scholar with the passion and insight of a long-time comics fan, untangling the morass of legal issues facing comics - and all creative enterprises - in the past, present and future. Comic Art, Creativity and the Law is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the multi-billion dollar global industry that comics has spawned.' -- Rob Salkowitz, author of Comic-Con and the Business of Pop Culture `Marc Greenberg's Comic Art, Creativity and the Law gives a detailed, thoughtful "look under the hood" of one of the United States' most vibrant and under appreciated creative industries. For anyone who cares about truly understanding the creative process and the lives of authors in our times, this should be part of your library.' -- Justin Hughes, William H. Hannon Professor of Law, Loyola Law School and chief US negotiator for the Beijing and Marrakesh copyright treaties `An intellectual tour de force and a compelling read . . . Far beyond a practical guide to the law of comics (though it is that too), Greenberg's book touches on the nature of creativity, the basis for IP law and the history of this fascinating medium.' -- Professor Mark A. Lemley, Director, Stanford Law School, US

Reseña del editor:

The characters and stories found in comic art play a dominant role in contemporary popular culture throughout the world. In this first-of-its-kind work, Comic Art, Creativity and the Law examines how law and legal doctrine shapes the creative process as applied to comic art. The book examines the impact of contract law, copyright law (including termination rights, parody and ownership of characters), tax law and obscenity law has on the creative process. It considers how these laws enhance and constrain the process of creating comic art by examining the effect their often inconsistent and incoherent application has had on the lives of creators, retailers and readers of comic art. It uniquely explains the disparate results in two key comic book parody cases, the Winter Brothers case and the Air Pirates case, offering an explanation for the seemingly inconsistent results in those cases. Finally, it offers a detailed discussion and analysis of the history and operation of the `work for hire' doctrine in copyright law and its effect on comic art creators. Designed for academics, practitioners, students and fans of comic art, the book offers proposals for changes in those laws that constrain the creative process, as well as a glimpse into the future of comic art and the law.
