Last weekend, the University of Edinburgh hosted the fifth British Crime Historians Symposium, bringing together a broad range of scholars working on historical perspectives on crime from the disciplines of law, the humanities and the social sciences. This included a presentation by CREATe’s Dr Elena Cooper about intellectual property law and criminalisation. The full paper, to be published in Landmarks on Intellectual Property Law, (Hart Press, 2017) provides original historical insights into the position of intellectual property crime in criminal law frameworks today. The paper is preliminary to Dr Cooper’s new three-year project to commence at CREATe in January 2017, funded by the Leverhulme Trust and mentored by Prof. Lindsay Farmer, exploring the history of the role of the criminal law in the category we today know as intellectual property law.
