Copyraud andOther Abuseso IntellectualProperty Law 
Jason Mazzone
Intellectual property law in theUnited States does not work welland it needs to be reormed—butnot or the reasons given by mostcritics. Rather, the primary prob-lem is overreaching by thosewho abuse intellectual property law by claiming stronger rightsthan the law actually gives them.Tis is the rst book to examineoverreaching as a distinct prob-lem and to show how to solve it.
“Makes a crucial contributionto a ramework or shoring upthe governance o bits in thedigital age. The ormidablepowers o intellectual propertyshould be matched by properpolicing o its boundaries.
—Jonathan Zittrain,Harvard University 
“Masterully shows the aston-ishing ways in which contentindustries misuse their intel-lectual property rights—andhow to rein them in. A mustread or anyone who caresabout the uture o creativity.

Felony Murder
Guyora Binder
Felony Murder 
is the rstbook on this controversiallegal doctrine. It shows thatelony murder liability restson a simple and powerul idea:that the guilt incurred in at-tacking or endangering oth-ers depends on one’s reasonsor doing so. Inicting harmis wrong, and doing so or abad motive—such as robbery,rape, or arson—aggravatesthat wrong. In presenting thisidea, Guyora Binder criticizesprevailing academic theorieso criminal intent or trying topurge criminal law o moral judgment. Ultimately, Bindershows that elony murder lawhas been and should remainlimited by its justiying aims.
“Dismantles a mythologicalhistory that has long shapedcriminal law teaching andanchored modern criminallaw theory, opening a pathto a undamentally new wayo understanding the role o criminal law in contempo-rary society. Truly one o theoutstanding contributions tocriminal law theory in our time.”

Te Failed Promiseo Originalism
Frank Cross
Te primary point o the book isan examination o the degree towhich originalism inuences theCourt’s decisions. Frank B. Crosstests this by examining whetheroriginalism appears to constrainthe ideological preerences o the justices, which are a demon-strable predictor o their decisions.Ultimately, he nds that howevertheoretically appealing origi-nalism may seem, the changedcircumstances over time andlack o reliable evidence meansthat its use is indeterminate andmeaningless. Originalism can beselectively deployed or manipu-lated to support and legitimizeany decision desired by a justice.

Judicial Independenceand JudicialAccountability inthe States
G. Alan arr
Te impartial administrationo justice and the account-ability o government ocialsare two o the most strongly held American values. Yetthese values are oen in directconict with one another.At the national level, the U.S.Constitution resolves the ten-sion between these two valuesin avor o judicial indepen-dence. But at the state level,debate has continued as to theproper balance between judi-cial independence and judicialaccountability. In this volume,arr ocuses squarely on thatdebate. In part, the analysis ishistorical: how have the reign-ing conceptions o judicial in-dependence and accountability emerged. In part, the analysis istheoretical: what is the properunderstanding o judicial inde-pendence and accountability?

Edited by Charles Gardner Geyh
