Media reviews
'It is clear from reading the book that the author has spent a considerable amount of time researching and understanding copyright law, while at the same time writing in a non-legalese style.' [Information World Review] Norman's book, chatty in style, makes a good read and can be recommended to anyone wanting a general introduction to UK copyright law.' [Journal of Documentation] 'The book is well laid out, and I think the author has excelled in bringing together issues relevant to such a disparate profession.' [Legal Information Management] 'This book is likely to be a regularly consulted reference volume for library workers, information managers and anyone who manages the use of copyright material and needs an accessible introduction to copyright law.' [Freepint] 'This book is a summation of Norman's considerable knowledge and experience in an easily digestable format, and along with Cornish and Padfield, is a 'must have' purchase for your shelves.'
