The IPKat: Past historic 3: Copyright infringement and the tale of St Columba

By Jeremy Phillips, on IPKat, a scholarly source for the hoariest oldest chestnut of Irish copyright law:

Past historic 3: Copyright infringement and the tale of St Columba

The subject of this essay is the story of Columba — saint, scholar and alleged copyright infringer — and the ruling against him: “To every cow its calf and to every book its copy”. Readers of this weblog will recall that its author had cause to return to the story in the course of some Irish copyright blogging towards the end of last year: you can access the follow-up by clicking “Wednesday Whimsies, or a Tale of Three Lams …” here and scrolling down till you find “More on St Columba Again”
