Abstract

What can and can’t be copied is a matter of law, but also of aesthetics, culture, and economics. The act of copying, and the creation and transaction of rights relating to it, evokes fundamental notions of communication and censorship, of authorship and ownership—of privilege and property. This volume conceives a new history of copyright law that has its roots in a wide range of norms and practices. The essays reach back to the very material world of craftsmanship and mechanical inventions of Renaissance Italy where, in 1469, the German master printer Johannes of Speyer obtained a five-year exclusive privilege to print in Venice and its dominions. Along the intellectual journey that follows, we encounter John Milton who, in 1644 accused the English parliament of having been deceived by the ‘fraud of some old patentees and monopolizers in the trade of bookselling’ (i.e. the London Stationers’ Company). Later revisionary essays investigate the regulation of the printing press in the North American colonies as a provincial and somewhat crude version of European precedents, and how, in the revolutionary France of 1789, the subtle balance that the royal decrees had established between the interests of the author, the bookseller, and the public, was shattered by the abolition of the privilege system. Some of the essays also address the specific evolution of rights associated with the visual and performing arts. The volume is a companion to the digital archive Primary Sources on Copyright (1450-1900), funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). Privilege and Property is recommended in the Times Higher Education Textbook Guide (November, 2010).

Abstract

This book offers a panorama on the research on the School of Salamanca carried out in the last decade. In this period a great renewal of research methods took place, together with the growing interest of various disciplines in Salamanca's scholasticism, its internationalization as a field of study and the launching of various research projects and initiatives of publication of important scholastic sources aimed at broadening previous research perspectives, until recently very focused on the study of natural law, the law of nations and some theological and metaphysical themes. Our critical review of the recent research on the School of Salamanca takes its main conclusions from a wide bibliography of academic works having being published between 2008 and 2019. These writings are ordered according to an exhaustive list of thematic descriptors, which make it easy to locate the publications dedicated to a certain author, concept, research topic or institution (mendicant orders, Universities,...). Although most of the concepts used as descriptors are of philosophical-political and historical-legal character, the bibliography offers conceptually and institutionally ordered references related to disciplines such as history of the book, history of Universities, natural philosophy or epistemology, in what is intended to be a faithful image of the current multidisciplinary interest on Salamanca scholasticism.---La presente obra ofrece una perspectiva sobre la investigación realizada en la última década acerca de la Escuela de Salamanca. Se trata de un período caracterizado por la renovación de los métodos de estudio, el creciente interés de diversas disciplinas en la escolástica salmantina, su internacionalización como campo de estudios y el lanzamiento de distintos proyectos de investigación y edición de fuentes destinados a ampliar los horizontes de estudio de la misma, hasta hace poco tiempo muy concentrados en el estudio de la ley natural, el derecho de gentes y algunos temas teológicos y metafísicos. La revisión crítica de la investigación reciente sobre la Escuela de Salamanca que presentamos apoya sus principales conclusiones en una amplia bibliografía de trabajos académicos sobre la Escuela publicados entre 2008 y 2019, ordenada de acuerdo a una exhaustiva lista de descriptores temáticos que hacen fácilmente localizables las publicaciones consagradas a un determinado autor, concepto, tema de investigación o institución (órdenes mendicantes, Universidades,...). Aunque la mayoría de conceptos utilizados como descriptores son conceptos filosófico-políticos e histórico-jurídicos, la bibliografía recoge y ordena a nivel conceptual e institucional, muchos otros trabajos sobre la Escuela de interés para la historia del libro, las Universidades, la filosofía natural o la epistemología, en lo que se pretende sea un reflejo fiel del actual interés multidisciplinar sobre la escolástica salmantina.
