Authors And Owners: The Invention of Copyright

Front Cover
Turtleback Books, Aug 1, 1995 - Literary Criticism - 176 pages
0 Reviews
The notion of the author as the creator and therefore the first owner of a work is deeply rooted both in our economic system and in our concept of the individual. But this concept of authorship is modern. Mark Rose traces its formation in eighteenth-century Britain--and in the process highlights still current issues of intellectual property.
