dc.description.abstractThis paper extends recent discussions about copyright and the public domain by looking at attempts in post-war Britain to promote access to scientific information. More specifically, it concentrates on the Royal Society's Fair Copy Declaration (1950) and the related library copying provisions introduced in the Copyright Act 1956, which were designed to protect access to information. While the UK library copying provisions were presented as an expanded version of the Fair Copy Declaration recast in a statutory format, we show that the library copying provisions refected a specific way of thinking about creation, production and distribution that differed markedly from those that underpinned the Fair Copy Declaration.We also argue that the logic of creation refected in the library copying provisions shaped copyright law over the course of the twentieth century and beyond.en_US
