"This is a book about how technology has affected the music industry through a series of disruptions that have taken place ten times over the past century. Whenever technological innovations result in a compelling new way to distribute music to the public, the music industry changes in myriad and fundamental ways to adjust to the new format. And while the technologies themselves have evolved over the decades, the changes within the business follow a distinct pattern. Key Changes describes this pattern: it defines an analytical structure, the 6C Framework, that explains how the music business transformed in each era. The ten disruptions are the formats for distributing recorded music: phonograph records, radio, LPs, tapes, CDs, television, digital downloads, streaming, and streaming video; and then into the future with voice response and AI technologies, where the changes are in progress now. Each of these has a chapter in the book. The book concludes with an examination of how the 6C Framework applies across the timeline of various music formats, as well as to technologically induced changes in other industries, ranging from movies to sports to coffee, and it offers some observations about how blockchain technology could be the source of the next set of disruptive innovations in the music industry"--

It is a casebook on patent law that involves comparative jurisprudence tailored for India. The book is best described by highlighting the following features: (1) Casebook format - The casebook format suits practitioners and judges. It allows the reader to independently interpret and assess the implication of each caselaw, which forms a vital component of the practice of law. The reader is assisted towards this objective by only containing extracts of the relevant portions of the judgment. Even from an academic perspective, it provides an unfiltered view of the law, better than any unnecessary prose. (2) Comparative approach - For each topic of patent law, the book would provide a single point congregation of the relevant Indian provisions and extracts from relevant caselaw across India, the UK, the EU and the USA. This approach is ideal for India, where jurisprudence on the subject is limited. Courts, practitioners, and the Patent Office often resort to such a comparative approach to learn from the experiences of other jurisdictions. (3) Notes - Author's notes before and after each caselaw or topic fulfil four purposes: (i) set the context for the reader; (ii) critique the caselaw or to bring focus on to issues that arise in practice; (iii) contextualize the discussion to the Indian statute; and (iv) examine the historical perspective, including the legislative history. (4) Focus on law - it is a no-nonsense, no-rhetoric book, focussing on the law, its interpretation and application.
