Decree CCLXV on June 10, 1813. Rules to preserve the property of authors over their works

Full title original language:
Reglas para conservar á los escritores la propiedad de sus obras

Abstract:
According to some historians, Spanish copyright found here its first “immediate legislative precedent”. This genealogy is articulated around the controversial idea that copyright is nothing but property. If that conception of copyright is maintained, it makes sense to give historical prominence to these rules, which declared the property of books to their authors. In a typical liberal gesture, the content of the rules was also paradoxical since it quickly limited the property temporally. The rules were also promulgated in the immediate aftermath of the Spanish Constitution of 1812, one of the most liberal (and ephemeral) of its time.

Commentary: No commentaries for this record.
