Summary
Follows the course of British reform of copyright law through Parliament. Though the 1814 Copyright Act provided for modern interpretation of authorial rights, William Wordsworth and MP T. N. Talfourd campaigned actively from 1837 to 1841 to amend the act to include post-mortem rights. Their efforts, supported by many prominent literary figures, failed due to equally prominent opposition and the ability of utilitarians and free traders in Parliament to kill the bill through procedural maneuvers. The Tory majority returned after the 1841 general election and paved the way for compromise passage in 1842
