Free (iTunes DRM-free/Kindle) Screenscam by M. Bowen [Copyright Law Murder Mystery]

Screenscam by Michael Bowen is 1st in his Rep & Melissa Pennyworth copyright/trademark lawyer & English professor amateur sleuth murder mystery-solving power couple series, which given the arguments we have over the former subject in MR should be fun for a lot of readers here. This is free courtesy of publisher Poisoned Pen Press, who are also discounting further titles in the series.

Currently free without DRM @ iTunes (available to Canadians).

For a limited time, #2 is discounted to $2.99 and #3-5 are $4.99 (regularly $6.99 each). You can get them cheapest via Kobo where they're couponable (but DRMed) or if you manage to get one of those save $$ on an iTunes Gift Card deals from Best Buy/Future Shop/etc. and pick them up subsidized and DRM-free via the iBookstore. If Books on Board's 40-50% sale lasts long enough to do the pricematching as they did with the earlier PPP Kerry Greenwood sale offerings, they'll probably eventually have the best pricing plus bonus Reward Bucks (linkage for your pricematch-check convenience; even if the 1st book sucks, I want the 2nd, because I'm a sucker for historical recreationists).

Here's the linkage to Bowen's author page @ PPP which has the titles, series order numbering, and buy-links to the major stores.

Description
Rep Pennyworth faces the client from hell: Charlotte Buchanan contends her 1997 novel is the basis for the 1999 film, Contemplation of Death. She wants to sue. Rep digs in, aided by his literature-addicted wife Melissa, and files suit. By return mail comes a death threat, a grisly (and gristly) version of “Hold Your Tongue.” Research shows the film’s director to be Aaron Eastman, Hollywood legend, whose Red Guard should have been a box office and critical smash but fell oddly short. Eastman contends the Oscar balloting was sabotaged. He and Rep talk and, bit by bit, the outline of a bizarre scheme to destroy the credibility of Red Guard—and Eastman—emerges. Hoosiers Rep and Melissa aren’t prepared for what happens next.

Now price-matched @ Amazon (available to Canadians).

I've since read this and it's really very funny and quite satirical in a low-key tongue-in-cheek deadpan way, spoofing copyright law, academia, office politics, and sex fetishes all at the same time. I look forward to reading the rest once Hugo voting season is over.

Suggested title update that will fit:
