Owning Culture: Authorship, Ownership, and Intellectual Property Law

By Kembrew McLeod | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

First, I want to thank Sophy Craze and Toby Miller for caring about this project and giving me the opportunity to bring it to fruition. Sophy was one of the only editors who had a full understanding of what I was trying to convey in this book, and her support and guidance was essential.

For pushing me to go to college even when I didn't want to (and making all of this possible), I thank my mom, and I also thank my dad for teaching me early on to think outside the box, which is what I had to do for this project.

Bruce Busching helped inspire me to pursue an advanced degree, and once I entered grad school David Bromley took me under his wing and provided me with lots of support (and many muffins!). Melissa Click heard about this idea before nearly anyone, and over the course of the five years we lived together (and beyond), she continued to give me encouragement.

A special thank you to Sut Jhally, Briankle Chang, David Lenson, Justin Lewis and Rosemary Coombe, all of whom provided me with sound guidance during the early stages of writing this book. And near the end, Michael England's assistance with formatting my references and endnotes kept everything on schedule.

The idea for the epilogue of this book came from a particularly memorable camping trip with Susan Ericsson, Eric Morgan and Lisa Rudnick, all of whom have heard more than their fair share of talk about intellectual property law. Furthermore, Lisa Rudnick's input when I wrote the first draft of this book was crucial in helping to develop some of the key ideas contained here, more so than she probably realizes.

Thanks to Negativland for getting sued in 1991 and sparking my interest in the topic of intellectual property, and special thanks to Mark Hosler for taking my phone calls about this suit over the course of the 1990s. Also, I appreciate Steve Jones's willingness to look over parts of this manuscript and give his feedback.
