Abstract

As an effect of industrial and technological development during the 19th and 20th Century technologies such as telegraphs, photography, railways, the telephone, the car, electricity, the phonograph or airplanes became objects oflaw and legal cases. These technologies challenged some fundamental concepts of law. The article focuses on the legal context of Switzerland and especially the Integration ofnew technical devices into Copyright laws and argues that law is reluctant to conceptual change: new technologies are integraled into old esthetic concepts. In the 1950s and 1960s a change in the pereeption oftechnology byjurists can be observed: Whilesome voiees arguefor a new Interpretation of old traditions, others eritieize the undermining of law by technology.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
