Reading list: poetry and copyright norms


Intellectual property grants
artificial monopolies to authors, and this practice has long been justified as
an economic bargain necessary to encourage new authors. However, many creative
communities thrive without intellectual property protection. These communities
have been described as intellectual property’s negative spaces. This Note
navigates those negative spaces by the light of the contemporary poetry
community’s efforts to discourage thieving and encourage transformative
copying. The community does so though there is little money in poetry, and thus
little to animate an economic justification for intellectual property
protection. Observing how one community considers intellectual property without
an economic underpinning will help the legal community make informed decisions
as intellectual property continues to navigate the creative sea of changes of
the twenty-first century.
