    Excellent compilation

    At last, something that makes sense for those of us who need to download from the 'Net. This is the easiest book I've ever read explaining how copyright works for figuring out how to use pictures. I hadn't realized it was actually a text book, but it is extremely well written and has great examples. The examples she uses really help you to understand the law. Another surprise are the chapters that show you how to search for pictures, video and sound files without worrying about whether or not you can use them.
