In this Paper we examine the development and removal of the 1911 Imperial copyright reversion right. We find this right was spuriously removed in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. We then find that criticisms of the right in Canada (it still exists there) can help teach us what a new, effective reversion right might look like.

This abstract is from a version of this paper accepted for publication in vol 41(4) of the European Intellectual Property Review (2019). The final version published contains very slight amendments.
