Abstract

Reviews and Remarks 189 after explaining a certain topic. This allows readers to locate more-detailed information if needed. Most of the cases Pedley cites are laws enforced by the European Union or British Parliament, making the book less useful for librarians in the United States. Chapters 6 and 8 specifically refer to current topics discussed by the United Kingdom (The Digital Economy Act 2010 and The Hargreaves Review). He does, however, cite some major U.S. court cases and their im- plications for American librarians, including the Georgia State Case (p. 149). Unfortunately, there is not enough pertinent information in this book for me to recommend a comprehensive read for librarians in the United States; however, I do see the usefulness of this title as a starting point for resources on a specific topic regarding e-copyright.
