(p.155) Conclusion
Authors, Users, and Pirates

James Meese

The MIT Press

The conclusion begins by outlining the contributions the book has made to the literature, namely its identification of the socio-legal construction of relational subjectivity and the substantial theorization of relationality. In addition to these scholarly contributions, the book challenges simplistic policy narratives about copyright law and explains how it contributes to studies of media industries through its examination of how changes in media consumption, distribution and convergence helped to embed relationality in the broader media environment. The conclusion ends by suggesting that a greater attentiveness to algorithmic processes, better evidence around the role and function of copyright as well as more thought around the conceptual basis for copyright would contribute to a better understanding of the author, user and pirate in law.
