Overview

How was modernism shaped, from its beginning, by intellectual property law? What role did the law's imperial and transatlantic asymmetries play in modernism's dissemination? How did various modernists exploit, reform, anoint, and evade copyright? And how is the study of modernism today being affected by expanding copyright regimes?
Modernism and Copyright is the first book to take up these questions. A truly multi-disciplinary study, it brings together essays by scholars of literature, theater, cinema, music, and law as well as by practicing lawyers and caretakers of modernist literary estates. Its contributors' methods are as diverse as the works they discuss: Ezra Pound's copyright statute and Charlie Parker's bebop compositions feature here, as do early Chaplin films, EverQuest, and the Madison Avenue memo. As our portrait of modernism expands and fragments, Modernism and Copyright locates works such as these on one of the few landscapes they all clearly share: the uneven terrain of intellectual property law.

    Moonlight on Chapter 3

    It is still amazing. There were even more typos than the last, though. And it wasn't just punctuation. It was also capitalization and in only two to three cases, proper grammar. If you like, I could be your editor.

    Take a Bow Chapter Three

    Cole sat speechless. He had not expected her to turn him down. Cole had anger management but he hid it good whenever something made him mad he would eat a fireball and it would usally calm him down. Now was not the time for a fire ball. Now was time for a whole in the wall. Cole cussed to something else people usually didnt see. Cole watched her speechless and thought of everything he could call her. It took every ounce of his strength to push through the crowd grab her hand and lead her into the hallway without punching anybody or hurting her. "Sabrina I know you love me so why are you playing with my heart? He said tensly." "Cole Im not playing. I have a feeling im going to say yes and then your going to find another amazing girl." Cole lost it then he couldnt hold his anger back now. "Another girl?!?! Is that really what you think? He yelled loudly. Maybe its you maybe you have another boy in mind and you dont love me anymore!!" Sabrina winced. "No cole thats not it" she said softly hoping he would quiet too. "Youre lying!" He grabbed her wrist and dragged her outside. "Tell me sabrina" he said once they were outside. "Tell me what is so fuc.king wrong with me?" She winced and tears filled her eyes. Every time he spoke his words felt like slaps to the face. She knew she had to stand up for herself. She was terrified though. She had seen what cole could do to someone it never ended good. "What are you thinking Sabrina?" He said harshly. She shook her head. He got closer to her so she could smell his cologne. "Tell me." His words were clear and crisp. Like isicles clinging to his tongue. "Im scared your going to hurt me." She whispered. He wrapped his arms around her and kissed her head. "Shows that I will come back from Iraq." She smiled. "Sing to me Cole." She whispered. He thought for a moment d slowly started. "Nevermind i'll find someone like youoo. I wish nothing but the best for you twoo. Dont forget me I beg. I remember you said. Sometimes it lasts in love and sometimes it hurts instead." Tears filled her eyes as she realized it was the first song they had ever sang together. "Was that good?" He asked. She nodded and held him tight never wanting to let go. "When do you leave? She asked. He sighed and kissed her forehead. "Next week." he mumbled. She gasped and looked up at him. "Will you write me?" He nodded taking the moments in. She sighed. "Truthfully Cole I want to marry you." He smiled lightly. "Do you still want me?" Cole thought he knew the accident had messed her up in the head and he knew she was scared. He also knew that she didnt like all the attention on her. He nodded and squeezed her tightly. He didnt know what it was about her. She wasnt very pretty. But she never wore make up. She wasnt skinny but she wasnt obese. She wasnt extraordinarily nice. She was just sabrina. She was bi polar and she did have the accident. But no major life threatening things. So what drew him to this freshman? "Sabrina will you marry me?" This was the last time he would ask her. He wanted her but why push an issue when you would always know the out come. Sabrina just stood there thinking of everything that had happened in the last 50 monutes. She breathed deeply and suddenly she felt something hard hit her head and then shatter. Everything went black. *********** should i keep going? And no this is not Arwen or whoever lolz.
