Technological and economic concerns have long been the drivers of debate about copyright. But diverse disciplines in the humanities—including literary studies, aesthetics, film studies, and the philosophy of art—have a great deal to offer if we wish to establish a more nuanced and useful conception of copyright and authorship. This volume brings together scholars from a range of disciplines to explore the challenges inherent in translating aesthetics and creativity studies to concepts of copyright, especially as longstanding approaches are troubled by the rise of the digital.

Mireille van Eechoud is professor of law in the Institute for Information Law at the University of Amsterdam.
