In the past several months I have been thinking about, and rethinking, copyright law and theory. This rethinking culminated in a paper I was supposed to present at University College London Postgraduate and Early Careers Conference but could not attend due to unforeseen circumstances.
My thoughts will be broken down into two posts. In this first post, I will briefly outline the emergent perspective as a result of this rethinking; the second entitled ‘Towards a Governance Theory: Kenyan and Nigerian Laws on Sound Recordings’ will apply this perspective to concrete issues pertaining to compulsory licensing of sound recordings in the titled countries’ copyright laws.
