The law of intellectual property is being profoundly affected by the widespread adoption of digital technology. This paper reviews the rarely considered history and philosophy of digital technology and of intellectual property law to reveal the misconception of certain popular beliefs. This leads to some observations about the implications of the world-wide adoption of digital technology and the efforts to impose and extend intellectual property rights globally.
