Public disputes here and overseas involving eminent playwrights and their directors and dramaturgs have fuelled a chorus of commentary about the ‘ownership’ of a stage work. Are collaborators who contribute words or ideas to the development entitled to copyright protection and royalties from subsequent productions?

Salter examines the complexities of reform and the limitations of the single-author ruling.
