Brown, Jonathan

Questions, in light of the continued existence of the offence of plagium in Scotland, involving the aggravated theft of pre-pubescent children, whether children are considered as 'mere things' under Scots law. Examines the history of the crime of plagium and looks at how it is connected to the Scottish notion of 'property'.
