Abstract:     
This exploration into the history of ideas starts with Deuteronomy 17:19. The lessons that the Talmud and medieval commentators derive from that verse match surprisingly well the current fascination, sparked by the Internet, of the difference between atoms and bits. The author searches back in the history of copyright law to derive unexpected parallels to doctrines that have a pedigree of millennia.
