The editors (both of the Michigan State U. College of Law) present 17 chapters addressing neglected and emerging issues of the regulation of cultural production and distribution in the digital age. Topics include the implications of cloud computing for copyright control, the media diversity potential of "long-tail markets" that exploit the reduced marginal costs of adding content, the ability of digital technologies to culturally unify diasporic communities such as Jamaican musical producers, issues of overlapping jurisdiction in the context of libel tourism, threats to free speech arising from jurisdictional convergence in the area of libel, strategies utilized by nation states to censor online content, the nature of constitutional rights in the private digital sphere, and the ways in which indigenous communities bend to technologies to their own needs.
