Each chapter now includes a section that clearly introduces the fundamentals of the IP law aspect highlighted in the chapter. Each chapter also includes a new section dedicated to emerging Issues.
Case coverage is revised in two important ways: the bulk of the case analyses have been moved to a second volume, Case Analyses for Intellectual Property Law and New Media (Baron, Lamoureux, and Stewart); and references to cases in the primary text direct readers to pertinent sections in the new book.
The coverage allows this second edition to serve as an excellent resource for undergraduates studying interactive media, as well as being a primer for first year IP law students, a handbook for entrepreneurs, a guidebook for general lawyers to assist in referrals, and an interesting read for those simply curious about the field.
The books are supplemented by freeforafee.com, a blog providing textual updates, online links to bibliographic materials, and extensive resource aggregation. Learning objectives for each chapter and a glossary of key terms is provided within the texts.

Surveying the Intellectual Property Landscape
This 2nd edition advances three principal proposals. First, the intellectual property legal regime that preceded the development of computational, digital, networked communication (new media) remains, at least for the most part, in place. Second, new media activities are responsible to that regime while presenting it with a stunning array of challenges. Third, students preparing for a life as media producers and consumers benefit from increased understanding of the complexities in, and legal risks arising from, intellectual property law. Nothing has changed; everything has changed.
