"Invaluable in its scrutiny of property rights, definitions of plagiarism and piracy, perjury and other issues of legal quotation." Forum on Modern Language Studies "This important collection of essays begins to develop a coherent history of copyright and intellectual property doctrine and the place of both in organizing and policing cultural production. This volume should be read by everyone in cultural studies interested either in the history of authorship or in the ways electronic production is changing how we think about the processes of artistic creation."--Janice Radway, Duke University
