Art, Artifact, Architecture & Museum Law provides expert examination of the policies and laws concerning the visual arts-the first work of its kind to link procedure, substance, and evidence and to present an integrated analysis of the social, policy, economic, and cultural issues so crucial to arts transactions and litigation. We have renamed the book to recognize the valuable information in it relating to museums."
Film and Multimedia and the Law (formerly titled How to Avoid Reel Legal Problems: A Film Making & Multimedia Legal Guide) provides a detailed legal guide for lawyers and non-lawyers encompassing legal issues surrounding filmmaking.

It explains the complex legal principles and illustrates them with compelling legal decisions that are illustrative and entertaining to read. Over 1,000 case citations are included. It also discusses the practical limitations imposed by intellectual property."
