This chapter examines the impact of the development of international copyright law in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries upon authorial practice in the period through a close examination of Joseph Conrad's novel, 'Under Western Eyes' (1911). The first half of the chapter provides a detailed survey and critical commentary on the expanding domain and extent of international copyright law in this period, while the second half offers a close examination of the textual matter (and its copyright status) circulating within Conrad's novel.
