Researching Copyright Law: Treatises, Law Reviews & Journals

A guide to resources on copyright law available at Brooklyn Law School.


A treatise can be an extremely useful secondary source for researching copyright law because it gathers detailed information and presents it in a clear, understandable manner. Plus, like all of the most useful secondary sources, treatises contain a wealth of references and citations to related primary authorities (cases, statutes, and administrative rules and regulations) and also contain analysis of, and often commentary on, primary law.

Law Reviews and Journals

Articles on copyright issues appear in every type of law review and journal. However, there are also some publications specifically focused on intellectual property topics.

In addition to the print holdings listed below, there are numerous other subscription journal and databases in electronic format available to Brooklyn Law School students and staff. More information on accessing these resources is available online or in the library.
