"Kent/Harry Bloom"
Harry Bloom’s work is one of the forgotten histories of intellectual property law. Bloom, a South African writer, ‘deserves to be remembered as the founder of the teaching of the law affecting the media in the UK’ (Saxby and Goldberg, 2013). He conceived the discipline in a very wide manner, as a subject crucially linked to communications, media and information technologies. With Bryan Niblett, he set up a centre with a Legal research Unit in Computers and Communications at the University of Kent. While he was an influential member of the British Computer Society and spokesman and representative of the society on copyright before the Whitford Committee (1977), his importance is best appreciated not only by his pioneering work but also by the influence he exerted over his students, some of whom, like Jeremy Phillips and Stephen Saxby, became prominent scholars in intellectual property and information technology.

Abstract

Harry Bloom’s work is one of the forgotten histories of intellectual property law. Bloom, a South African writer, ‘deserves to be remembered as the founder of the teaching of the law affecting the media in the UK’ (Saxby and Goldberg, 2013). He conceived the discipline in a very wide manner, as a subject crucially linked to communications, media and information technologies. With Bryan Niblett, he set up a centre with a Legal research Unit in Computers and Communications at the University of Kent. While he was an influential member of the British Computer Society and spokesman and representative of the society on copyright before the Whitford Committee (1977), his importance is best appreciated not only by his pioneering work but also by the influence he exerted over his students, some of whom, like Jeremy Phillips and Stephen Saxby, became prominent scholars in intellectual property and information technology.
