Origin and scope of the prerogative right to print and publish certain works in England
Gilchrist, John. (2012) Origin and scope of the prerogative right to print and publish certain works in England. Canberra Law Review. 11(2), pp. 4 - 31.
There have been a number of claims made in courts in England and other parts of the United Kingdom over the last three centuries concerning the scope of the Crown's exclusive right to print and publish certain works. This right is currently preserved under s 171 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (UK) but has been substantially altered by that Act. The right remains preserved in Australia under s 8A(1) of the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth) . The exclusive right to print and publish certain works is based on an ancient prerogative of the Crown. This article examines the basis and origins of the right, its nature and scope and the extent of the works presently subject to the right in England. An analysis of the extent of those works presently subject to the right in Australia is the subject of the succeeding article.
