Law professor Oren Bracha offers a thorough, scholarly treatise on the development of US copyright, intellectual property and patent laws. He covers the major social, economic and political trends and legal concepts behind pivotal court cases. He focuses on ideas at the core of negotiating the ownership of intangible works of the mind in the 1800s. The cases he presents shaped policy and legislation as they established the framework for intellectual property protection. He shows how these cases also relate to broader social trends. Bracha’s nuanced, though academic, overview provides excellent background and analysis for laypeople.
