Overview

I'm writing a series of articles on United Kingdom copyright law, particularly the history of it. Unfortunately, this requires dedicated and highly specific academic books.

Budget

£264.65:

Timeline

3 months; the success/failure can be gathered by content citations :P.

Expected outcomes

A Featured Article on the Statute of Anne, with good articles on two other historical copyright statutes, a good article on the history of United Kingdom copyright law, and a good article on UK copyright law in general.

Hi Ironholds, thanks for the application. Are any of the books available for loan from a library, or are they reference-only? Thanks. Mike Peel 08:46, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
Not from any of the ones near me, at least - they're rather specific and narrow textbooks designed primarily for academics in a particularly tiny field, so I can't imagine they're in many places. Ironholds 12:26, 18 October 2011 (UTC)
Looking on Amazon, the first is available second-hand for £94, and a few quid can be saved on the others by going with other sellers than Amazon, which would bring it under the £250 mark. If that's OK, then I'm happy to approve this. Please could you email me your postal address and I'll get the books sent to you? Thanks. Mike Peel 13:20, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
Approved, and books ordered - total cost was £227.31. Thanks. Mike Peel 13:59, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
