Immanuel Kant: 'On the Unlawfulness of Reprinting', essay in Berlinische Monatsschrift 5 (1785) 403-417

Full title original language:
Von der Unrechtmäßigkeit des Büchernachdrucks

Abstract:
This commentary will focus on the late reception of Locke's property theory in Germany, on German Enlightenment notions of the book as a 'speech', on the negligible impact of Kant's essay on German copyright theory, and it will also suggest a possible new relevance of Kant's ideas in the context of modern internet communication.
