Drawing on and extending Benjamin's idea of mechanical reproduction, this astute and timely book investigates the radical potential of technically unlimited reproduction in postmodern culture. Celia Lury describes a move from a regime of cultural rights ordered by authorship, originality and copyright to one which is defined by branding, simulation and trademark. Novel, imaginative and cogently argued, Cultural Rights makes a major contribution to the sociology of culture and cultural studies.
