Summary Paper examines the effect of international copyright laws on the US publishing market in the nineteenth century, when the US was itself a developing economy, and international copyrights were routinely subject to “piracy”. Author briefly compares US policies toward patents (easily implemented) with those of copyrights (see id. at 26). Author attributes difficulty of implementing copyright reforms to nineteenth century political atmosphere, which emphasized “the objectives of the Constitution in promoting the progress of social welfare,” including easy public access to literature. Id. at 29.
