The 1911 Copyright Act, often termed the Imperial Copyright Act, changed the jurisprudential landscape in respect of copyright law, not only in the United Kingdom but also within the then Empire. This book offers a birds eye perspective of why and how the first global copyright law launched a new order, often termed the common law copyright system.
