New book on protection of private correspondence and other unpublished works

Dr Patrick Masiyakurima

Protection from unauthorised publication of works which have not previously been made public has historically been very important for a variety of public figures and business.  This has gained contemporary significance, in light of ongoing litigation relating to correspondence of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

We are pleased to announce the publication of a guide to this and related legal problems, by Patrick Masiyakurima. Published this year by Hart, the new book entitled 'Copyright Protection of Unpublished Works in the Common Law World' explores the legal treatment of unpublished works from an historical, normative and comparative perspective. In particular Patrick considers whether protection that is available to unpublished works is justified.

In reviewing the book, Professor Charles Oppenheim described Patrick’s work as an “extremely well-researched and argued book, a model of legal writing, being always both clearly written and rigorous in its approach.”
