In 561 AD, the first copyright dispute was settled in a battle near Benbulben. Thousands of men lay dead in the field when the abbot Colmcille emerged as victor and claimed the right to his copy of the abbot Finian’s manuscript. This conflict arose when Colmcille secretly copied the book when he was a guest at Finian’s abbey. The latter claimed ownership in the copy and the dispute was taken to be settled by Diarmuit Ui Neill, high king of Ireland, whose judgment was: “To every cow its calf and to every book its copy.” Colmcille, not satisfied with this decision, brought his troops to battle against the high king and emerged victorious from the field (Corrigan, 2007).

Wheras printers, booksellers, and other
persons, have of late frequently taken the
liberty of printing... books, and other writings,
without the consent of the authors... to their
very great detriment, and too often to the
ruin of them and their families: For
preventing therefore such practices for the
future, and for the encouragement of learned
men to compose and write useful books…
STATUTE OF ANNE (1710)

“An illegal download is — to use an ugly
word — illegal. But in this case, it is not
unethical. Author and publisher are
entitled to be paid for their work, and by
purchasing the hardcover, you did so.
Your subsequent downloading is akin to
