Keeping in mind the language games of copyright maximalism and the globalization of the intellectual property debate, this book investigates the relationship of the state to culture within the context of a globalized flow of culture as a commodity. Given the complex and tangled interaction between culture, the state, and the law, this book seeks to contribute to the debate by looking specifically at the narratives produced by the state and associated actors when it comes to copyright law.
