The current generation of intellectual property scholars considers Bill Cornish’s intellectual property textbook, published in 1981, a seminal text. The book tackled a whole range of intellectual property issues in a single volume. As one of the first intellectual property textbooks specially produced in and for the university, Cornish’s book was fundamental, and unique, in shortening the distance between education and profession. His textbook was a tool for the transmission of knowledge about intellectual property law even before it was practiced.
