New Yorker Article on Copyright Infringement/Plagiarism

From the Pierce Law IP News Blog:

"A The New Yorker article provides a really good overview of Copyright Infringement with regards to derivative works. It starts out with an example of possible plagiarism/copyright infringement as a result of someone transforming a book into a play (without permission).

The article provides a thorough overview of famous derivative works cases, e.g. the Beastie Boys, Phantom of the Opera, George Harrison, Led Zeppelin/Muddy Waters, etc.

Anyway, I don't have much to comment about it because the article is just so good, people should just read it in its entirety."
