: What is the definition of chattel in copyright law?
Dear Paul Simmons,
The question is unclear. I'm not sure for instance whether a copyright is a chattel. The registration certificate would seem to me to be the chattel.
I think the word comes from the Old English Law, which may in fact come from the French law. Wasn't William the Conquerer French?
A focused legal question might get a better answer.
