Duke's Center for the Study of the Public Domain has released Intellectual Property: Law & the Information Society—Cases and Materials. Also available in paperback.

Here's an excerpt from the press release:

This book is an introduction to intellectual property law, the set of private legal rights that allows individuals and corporations to control intangible creations and marks-from logos to novels to drug formulae-and the exceptions and limitations that define those rights. It focuses on the three main forms of US federal intellectual property-trademark, copyright and patent-but many of the ideas discussed here apply far beyond those legal areas and far beyond the law of the United States.

Corinne Hui Yun Tan has self-archived "Terms of Service on Social Media Sites".

Here's an excerpt:

This article considers the provisions within the terms of service ('TOS') of the social media behemoths of today—Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and the Wikimedia Foundation. In particular, it examines the main provisions that purport to regulate, from a copyright perspective, generative activities on social media sites. This empirical work is undertaken so that the article can shed light on the relationship between the contractual and copyright regimes. To do so, the article identifies the instances where the contractual regime is to some extent aligned with the copyright regime, and further, where there are potential incompatibilities between the two regimes.
