|Title||Copy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Earl of Rosse [Laurence Parsons], Fellow of the Royal Society|
|Date||28 January 1896|
|Description||Rix clarifies that the Statute, chapter 14, section 5, indicates that every paper received by the Royal Society becomes their property, providing there is no former engagement to the contrary; though he notes that this appears to be related to the original manuscript and not perhaps the associated copyright.|
If the Earl of Rosse wishes for clarification on the point of law, Rix will bring the matter before his chiefs. In the meantime, he explains that it is customary to obtain permission from the Council prior to reproducing either the text or plates, though this is largely a matter of form and it is rare for them to raise any objections.
