Full title:
'Literary Entailments: Examination of a bill whose purpose it is to create, for the benefit of authors, inventors and artists, a perpetual monopoly.'

Full title original language:
'Les majorats littéraires. Examen d'un projet de loi ayant pour but de créer, au profit des auteurs, inventeurs et artistes, un monopole perpétuel.'

Abstract:
Facing the claims for a perpetual protection for literary and artistic property, in fact soon to be extended to 50 years p.m.a. in 1866, Socialist thought in France would engage in the debate on the nature of the author's right largely through the voice of Proudhon in his famous pamphlet against 'literary entailments' ('majorats littéraires'), fist published in 1862. Society had to be able to do without property. To an even greater extent, literary property 'is theft'! Proudhon in his radical outlook rejected any distinction whatsoever between an author and an inventor, and even the most fundamental concepts in this area, such as the idea/form dichotomy.
