Summary This book examines the relationship between the legal extension of copyright duration as an enduring means of copyright protection and the growth of the UK book publishing industry as a typical creative industry reliant on copyright. The book draws on Schumpeter's theory of creative destruction to analyse the implications of copyright law and policy on the book industry. The book reviews the historical development of UK copyright expansion and also considers copyright in the digital age.
