Summary In 'From Maimonides to Microsoft', Professors Netanel and Nimmer trace the development of Jewish copyright law by relaying the stories of five dramatic disputes, running from the sixteenth century to the present. They describe each dispute in its historical context and examine the rabbinic rulings that sought to resolve it. Remarkably, these disputes address some of the same issues that animate copyright jurisprudence today: Is copyright a property right or a limited regulatory prerogative? What is copyright's rationale? What is its scope? How can copyright be enforced against an infringer who is beyond the applicable legal authority's reach?
Contents Introduction : Microsoft in Bnei Brak -- From privileges and printers' guilds to copyright -- Rabbinic reprinting bans : between Ktav Dat and privilege -- Maharam of Padua versus Giustiniani : rival editions of Maimonides's Mishneh Torah -- Rabbinic reprinting bans take hold -- From a Yiddish bible to a German prayer book -- Internecine battles and the Slavuta Talmud -- Moving beyond reprinting bans : from property to the law of the sovereign -- The present-day debate : is copyright infringement "stealing"?
