I just did this on an assignment, so I can answer this question :D
Note that we usually talk about log(z) as being the principal branch; then it is only defined on the cut-plane. It turns out that you cannot define a function such that f'(z)=1/z on the whole complex plane. In other words 1/z does not have a primitive on all of C.
