Non-Legal Sources of Copyright Law

Isabella Alexander, University of Technology, Sydney, Faculty of Law, has published A Map, a Poem and Two Copyright Statutes as 2013 ANZLH E-Journal Refereed Paper No. 5. Here is the abstract.

This paper forms part of a forum made up of papers delivered at the 'Law, History, Culture: Reading Sources' workshop, held at the UTS Faculty of Law on 26 July 2013. The paper examines three sources: a map of John Seller, a poem by Jonathan Swift, and two copyright statutes of the eighteenth century and considers what light the non-legal sources throw upon the legal sources and what they can tell us about the early development of copyright law.
