"Bound by law?"

Tales from the Public Domain: Bound by Law? was written by three law professors James Boyle, Jennifer Jenkins and Keith Aoki and produced by the Center for the Study of the Public Domain at Duke Law School.

It examines the impact of the key principles of copyright law: "public domain" and "fair use." The comic book style presents the information in an easy to read and understand format.

From Blogcritics.org:
"Bound by Law? won't qualify anyone for membership in any professional organizations dedicated to intellectual property law. In fact, carrying it might alone be sufficient to keep a person out of some of those groups. But the aim isn't to make readers intellectual property experts. Rather, the goal is to educate artists and the public about current issues and provide commentary by those who believe copyright law must be fixed to remain a useful tool in a digital world."
