Who Owns Academic Work? Battling for Control of Intellectual Property. Corynne McSherry. Harvard University Press, Cambridge, MA, 2001. 287 pp. $29.95, £20.50, €34.40. ISBN 0-674-00629-1.

McSherry marshals legal, historical, and qualitative social analysis to argue that intellectual property threatens the ideals of the research university and, reciprocally, that scientific research troubles the principles of intellectual property.
