Recent Discussions on the Abolition of Patents for Inventions in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and the Netherlands: Evidence, Speeches, and Papers in Its Favour: With Suggestions as to International Arrangements Regarding Inventions and Copyright (1869)

Great find by David Koepsell: A book published in 1869, Recent Discussions on the Abolition of Patents for Inventions in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and the Netherlands: Evidence, Speeches, and Papers in Its Favour: With Suggestions as to International Arrangements Regarding Inventions and Copyright, ed. by Robert Andrew Macfie (London: Longmans, Green, Reader and Dwyer, 1869; free epub and pdf download).

Too bad they didn’t win the day. And too bad none of the modern statesmen or mainstream scholars will even consider patent abolition, as opposed to tepid reform.
