I did 100% of the research and writing, never using assistants of any kind. The book is seven volumes, all text.
. . . .
In single space, printed form, the treatise is close to 6,000 pages and will be that length after the first year's updates: it is looseleaf and will be updated twice a year. It is, by almost 100%, the largest treatise on copyright published, and is the first new multi-volume treatise on U.S. copyright law in 17 years.
Patry's monumental achievement is available now from West. If the $1,500 price tag gives you pause, don't worry -- shipping is free.
It's just as well that Amazon doesn't have it yet, since I've already blown the gift certificates I received for Christmas on Xbox games. Patry on Copyright may just have to wait for Fathers' Day.
