Coming Sunday — Paul Goldstein

April 3rd, 2009

Paul Goldstein is one of the world’s leading experts on intellectual property issues and the author of two absolutely cracking novels that explore this area, Errors and Omissions and A Patent Lie, both of which knocked me out. Writers, as the creators of intellectual property that’s increasingly likely to be stolen or bootlegged, will be especially interested in these books, although it’s hard for me to imagine anyone who wouldn’t. Goldstein, the Lillick Professor of Law at Stanford Law School, has also literally written the book(s) for intellectual property lawyers:  Copyright’s Highway: From Gutenberg to the Celestial Jukebox (Stanford University Press,Revised Edition 2003); Intellectual Property: The Tough New Realities that Could Make or Break Your Business (Penguin Portfolio 2007); the four-volume Goldstein on Copyright; and the one-volume International Copyright Principles, Law and Practice.  And he finds the time to write first-rate thrillers.

    I’m really excited to see what he’s got to say about the creative process-I’d imagine his is a bit of a different view-

    Good stuff.

    I’ll be back on Sunday to take a peek.

    Excellent choice. I was lucky enough to review ERRORS AND OMISSIONS and liked it a lot. I’m interested to hear what Paul has to contribute to this discussion.

    As you guys can see, Paul’s piece is up now. I really should have added to my intro that he’s one of the nicest men you’ll ever met. It’s always a pleasure to learn that a writer you admire is also an admirable human being.
