This is a book that has a lot to offer. Many of its readers will benefit from the first chapters which comprehensively analyse the case law and put it in context, whilst others will benefit more from the more conceptual chapters and the criticism of certain points and suggestions for a way forward contained in them. Paul L.C. Torremans, European Intellectual Property Review This timely volume offers a comprehensive review of case law, in various jurisdictions, on secondary liability for copyright infringement, particularly P2P file sharing and online infringements. Moreover, the book includes forward-looking contributions of prominent academics from the USA and the EU, which provide original perspectives on the future shape of online copyright law, looking at questions such as whether it could or even should evolve towards a compensation system. By combining these different avenues, the book will be of particular interest to practitioners, academics, researchers and legal scholars involved in the field of copyright law.This is a book that has a lot to offer.
