This book deconstructs the imperial policy regarding copyright, by reversing the order and asking how British copyright was received in the colonies. The book suggests a general model of Colonial Copyright, understood as the intersection of legal transplants, colonial law, and the particular features of copyrig The book suggests a general model of Colonial Copyright, understood as the intersection of legal transplants, colonial law, and the particular features of copyright, especially authorship.
Mandate Palestine —48 is the leading case study. The book tells a yet-untold history of copyright law that was the basis of Israeli law, and still is the law in the Palestinian Authority. The discussion is a critical cultural legal history, told from a postcolonial stance. It queries the British motivation in enacting copyright law, traces their first, indifferent reaction, and continues with the gradual absorption into the local legal and cultural systems. The story unfolded explores the emergence of local literary activities, the introduction of telegraph and radio, and the business models of the content industries.
We shall meet many pioneers, in literature, music, film, and the law. The discussion is acutely aware of the role of identity politics, and of the meeting point of the foreign, colonial law with the local norms and cultures. It suggests that we view colonial copyright as an early case of globalization.
