The thesis of this paper is neither new, nor subtle. It has, in fact, been a recurrent theme in many writings concerned with the interests in copyright and their effects in the present world. My LLM student concern was with the perversion of domestic copyright provisions from an incentive for learning and progress - within whatever limits that goal was fairly found in the statute and case decisions - into an insurmountable international obstacle to learning and education. Unfortunately, this 1993/4 LLM thesis remains as actual today as it was then.
