Summary

This chapter considers the challenges of undertaking historical research into intellectual property law, from physical, intellectual and methodological challenges, through to challenges of reaching the right audience and conveying relevance. It provides a broad overview of the different kinds of intellectual property histories and legal histories being undertaken and seeks to encourage more students and scholars to engage in rigorous historical research that is based upon primary sources and attentive to the duties and responsibilities of the disciplines of both law and history.
