Fifteen Years of Primary Sources on Copyright 1450-1900

Glasgow 16-17 October 2023

It is fifteen years since the launch of the Primary Sources on Copyright (1450-1900), the (AHRC funded) digital archive edited by Lionel Bently and Martin Kretschmer .

To celebrate this event a conference will be held on 16-17 October in the University of Glasgow’s Advanced Research Centre on a hybrid basis (allowing for online or in person attendance). This CREATe event is supported by ISHTIP, CIPIL & University of Cambridge.

The event comprises two key elements.

First, a number of national editors will present their new material for the digital archive. Patricia Akester (GPI-IPO) and Victor Drummond (Universidade Gama Filho) will launch their section covering Portugal and Brazil, Marius Buning (University of Oslo), Magne Klasson  (University of Oslo) and Martin Fredriksson (Linköping University) will speak about the forthcoming Scandinavian section, and further material for three existing sections – the Vatican, France and German speaking countries – will be presented by Jane Ginsburg (Columbia Law School), Katie Scott (The Courtauld), Frédéric Rideau (Université de Poitiers) and Friedemann Kawohl (CREATe Fellow). These talks are open to all scholars, including research students, of any discipline or jurisdiction and can be attended in person or online. If you would like to attend, in person or online, please email

Secondly, in the evening of Monday 16th October, we will be hosting an event that is open to the public, and also forms part of the CREATe Public Lectures series: Lionel Bently and  Martin Kretschmer, accompanied by a panel of national editors, will discuss ‘Fifteen Years of Primary Sources on Copyright (1450-1900): Changing world views and what comes next’. Everyone is welcome to join, either in person or on-line. Booking for the public lecture is available via Bookitbee here.
