The Acquisition of Property Interests

The Acquisition of Property Interests

(p.50) 3 The Acquisition of Property Interests
The Law of Property

Peter Birks

Oxford University Press

There are a number of different interests which can exist or be created in property. Most things (or at least their components) already exist and their acquisition involves some form of transfer from one person to another; the obvious exception is intellectual property such as copyright, in which the acquisition of the right occurs on creation of the work. There are a few other situations where property interests arise anew, and they are described in this chapter. Original interests include first titles, later titles, and accession and alteration. Property rights end when their object or its proceeds cease to exist as such. This chapter also discusses derivative interests and property transfer.
