Full title:
Publishing Right, including theories of the publishing contract and of reprinting, in accordance with the existing German and international laws, with special reference to the legislations of Austria, Prussia, Bavaria and Saxony

Full title original language:
Das Verlagsrecht, mit Einschluss d. Lehren von dem Verlagsvertrag u. Nachdr. nach d. geltenden deutschen u. internationalen Rechten mit bes. Rücksicht auf d. Gesetzgebungen von Oesterreich, Preussen, Bayern u. Sachsen

According to Wächter, the author's right is purely a publishing right that can be completely alienated by means of a publishing contract. This view resembles British and American notions of copyright and was also invoked by Hitzig, Meinert, and Gerber. In this sense it was the direct opposite of the personalistic approach employed by Neustetel, Bluntschli, and Gareis.
