(p.1) Introduction
Colonial Copyright

Michael D Birnhack

Oxford University Press

The Introduction presents the conceptual framework of the book, which is colonial copyright, and explains its premises and building blocks. These are the relationship between copyright law and culture, and the relationship between copyright law and technology. The theoretical framework of colonial copyright builds on the scholarship of legal transplants, colonialism, and copyright. The introduction provides a broad-brush sketch of Mandate Palestine (1917–48), and then outlines the structure of the book and the chapters. It comments on the methodology, periodization, and the historical sources, and concludes with a comment on copyright history.

Keywords:   colonial copyright, copyright history, Mandate Palestine, culture, law and technology, legal transplants
