Information Society or Cash Nexus? A Study of the United States as a Copyright Haven.
Warner, Julian
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v50 n5 p461-70 Apr 15 1999
Focuses on the history of the United States as a copyright haven from 1790 to the Chace Act of 1891. Indicates analogies between the United States' historical practice and the exploitation of its intellectual property, without observing copyright, to late 20th-century China. Examines the contrast between the idea of a transition to an information society and economic determinism. Contains 79 references. (Author/AEF)
