dc.description.abstract This article examines the underlying policy considerations regarding the ownership of copyright in statutes, regulations, and also law reports. It compares and contrasts the positions in New Zealand, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It looks particularly at the implications of electronic publication, and the role of private publishers. In essence, it asks whether the strict legal principle that the Crown (or in the American system, the State) owns the copyright in statutes and judicial decisions is less important than the principle of encouraging public access to the law. en
