Open Book Publishers reached out to me earlier this week to let me knowabout one of their new publications: Privilege and Property, Essays on the History of Copyright, edited by Ronan Deazley, Martin Kretschmer and Lionel Bently.
Here’s what they had to say about this one:
A vital book devoted to the history of copyright over the world. Fifteen pre-eminent academics discuss the changing state of intellectual property from its nascent forms to its present state; they show how copyright has affected education and creativity. It is essential reading for those interested in issues of intellectual property today; challenging, highly readable and of utmost relevance.
