Abstract:
Graves’ Case was decided by the Court of Queen’s Bench in 1869 under the Fine Arts Copyright Act 1862. The commentary casts new light on Blackburn J’s dicta concerning the statutory criterion of ‘originality’ in relation to a photograph of an engraving of a painting, by placing the decision in its legislative and enforcement context.
