Hiya Stevan, this is what I sent:

Wallace-Evans' rambling incoherent essay also makes the following statement:

"As Johns explains, the precedent of literary copyright predates that
of mechanical patent, of which it was a necessary precursor, by some
three-quarters of a century."

In fact, patents in England predated copyright by more than a century.
 Wallace-Evans can't even get his most basic facts correct!  An essay
best ignored.
