HC Deb 15 June 1891 vol 354 cc402-3
MR. BRYCE (Aberdeen, S.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether an answer has yet been returned by the Foreign Office to the inquiries which the President of the United States is understood to have addressed to Her Majesty's Government on the subject of the British Law relating to International Copyright, with a view to ascertain how far that law satisfies the conditions on which copyright in the United States can be declared to be capable of acquisition by British subjects?


No answer has yet been returned; but I am glad to say that Her Majesty's Government are advised that the law of this country in the matter of copyright is so favourable to aliens that we may expect to satisfy the conditions of the American Law.
