Is Banjo Paterson Australia’s most famous copyright lawyer?

I was listening to ABC Radio National and heard Pip Wilson being interviewed about Henry Lawson and Mary Gilmour. Then he mentioned Banjo Paterson, Lawson's friendly rival as Australia's national poet.

Pip Wilson said that Paterson was Lawson's copyright lawyer. Wow!

No wonder Wilson is so enthusiastic about late 19th century literary Australia: Lawson, Paterson, The Bulletin at their most creative. And Paterson is working in the city as a lawyer for his day job protecting Australia's literary heritage.

Great stuff: Wilson's novel Faces in the Street
