Jane M. Gaines examines the phenomenon of images as property, focusing on the legal staus of mechanically produced visual and audio images from popular culture. Bridging the fields of critical legal studies and cultural studies, she analyzes copyright, trademark, and intellectual property law, asking how the law constructs works of authorship and who owns the country's cultural heritage.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

This is one of the first efforts, and certainly the most ambitious and sustained ones, to bring the methods of poststructuralist literary criticism to the study of a whole field of legal doctrine, that of intellectual property law. The results are fascinating and richly rewarding.—Robert W. Gordon, Stanford Law School
