ABSTRACT
The article considers the effect of a Lockean approach to copyright on the public role in the making of authorship and art. The main theme of John Locke's philosophy in copyright discourse is based on a person's natural entitlement to the products of his labor. Scholars find his theory of property a solid argument with which to solve problems in copyright. Locke's philosophy strengthens the argument for recognizing the role played by a society's shared ideas and experiences in the creation of new works.
