During the past two decades, engineers, authors, publishers, consumers, lawyers and academics have witnessed extraordinary developments in the technological landscape, often leading to equally dramatic developments in the law of copyright. Many of these developments have been chronicled (or foreshadowed) in the pages of the Santa Clara computer and High Technology Law Journal. To celebrate the Journal's 20th Anniversary, this essay will place a number of articles which have appeared in the Journal in their historical context by taking a look back on how the law of copyright has changed during the past twenty years.
