I owe a substantial debt of gratitude to Bill Cornish, whose work and teaching first sparked my interest in copyright. As my supervisor he encouraged what must at first have seemed an unlikely project, and his support continues. I am also very grateful to Gill Sutherland: her rigour, patience and encouragement have been invaluable. Others have helped in other ways, particularly Tom Kass, who first suggested that I study law.
I have been privileged to work in Newnham throughout this time.
