New Book News: Copyright Beyond Law: Regulating Creativity in the Graffiti Subculture by Marta Iljadica

Copyright Beyond Law

Later in November 2016, Marta Iljadica’s new book Copyright Beyond Law: Regulating Creativity in the Graffiti Subculture will be released on Hart Publishing. Iljadica is a Lecturer in Law at Southampton Law School, having completed her PhD from King’s College London School of Law in 2012. According to the publisher, the book covers the following:

The form of graffiti writing on trains and walls is not accidental. Nor is its absence on cars and houses. Employing a particular style of letters, choosing which walls and trains to write on, copying another writer, altering or destroying another writer’s work: these acts are regulated within the graffiti subculture. Copyright Beyond Law presents findings from empirical research undertaken into the graffiti subculture to show that graffiti writers informally regulate their creativity through a system of norms that are remarkably similar to copyright.
