New from Elgar: Research Handbook on the History of Copyright Law (Isabella Alexander and H. Tomás Gómez-Arostegui, eds., Elgar Publishing, 2017) (Research Handbooks in Intellectual Property Series).
There has been an explosion of interest in recent years regarding the origin and of intellectual property law. The study of copyright history, in particular, has grown remarkably in the last twenty years, with a flurry of activity in the last ten. Crucial to this activity has been a burgeoning focus on unpublished primary sources, enabling new and stimulating insights. This Handbook takes stock of the field of copyright history as it stands today, as well as examining potential developments in the future.
