This concise and truly "little book" should be read by all teachers, writers, lawyers, judges, artists, and anyone else interested in copyright law or interesting things.

Posner's argument and his writing are analytical and informative without being dull, and his claim that liberals are too soft on plagiarism isn't wrong; though I'd hate to think that liberals would discount this book or his argument as conservative. Posner is, historically and here with this book, wonderfully and thrillingly pragmatic, and it's that pragmatism (coupled with his obviously awesome mind grapes) that make this book so appealing (it's also a ridiculously quick read [we're talking about an hour]).

So pick it up and enjoy a spoonful of delicious academic fun.
