Written in a clear and engaging manner, this is both a treatise on copyright law in the British Commonwealth (as it stood in 1903) and a sharp analysis of its shortcomings. It was the standard treatise of the day. Beginning with a history of English copyright law, Scrutton considers the author's rights at common law, lectures, oral and printed communications, such as plays, musical copyright, literary copyright in books, artistic copyright, colonial copyright and international copyright.
