'It is fascinating to learn how IP law came about, by demonstrating the socio-legal aspects of UK common law and emerging legislation, later adopted in the United States and other common law countries … The book is packed with helpful and detailed footnotes, case citations and historical documents - demonstrating that Richardson and Thomas must have experienced great academic pleasure when trawling through archived material not necessarily available online. … The book makes fascinating reading, useful for IP law lecturers and practitioners in this field in that one gains detailed knowledge about the background and ever evolving law of intellectual property set within a well-researched historical context of the eighteenth to early twentieth centuries.' Entertainment Law Review

'The in-depth and rigorous treatment of the legal aspects with emphasis on the soft and hard provisions in various international agreements along with the succinct examples makes the book a valuable read for researchers, practitioners and policy makers alike.' Vijayalakshmi Asthana, Journal of Intellectual Property Rights
