Love, passion and ... IP: When a copyright work goes too far

It seems a long, long time since I wrote an article for publication. Books, blogging and courses seemed to take all the available time. So I am delighted to be able to say that the Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice will soon be publishing a rather insubstantial piece I wrote about that famous copyright case, Glyn v Weston Feature Film Company, in response to the editor's request for pieces on the theme of "Love, passion and ... IP". Well, it had to be done, and I hope people find it entertaining. It is also quite illuminating, as the judgment isn't actually what the textbooks mostly say it is (my own textbook included, though not any longer) and as the novel was the biggest-selling book of 1907, and made its author a star, it really ought not to be confined to the footnotes.

Read the advance summary of my article here.
