Supremes Back Penguin Putnam in Lawsuit

Today the United States Supreme Court let stand a ruling that said Penguin Putnam’s book Dorothy Parker Complete Poems did not violate copyright laws. Stuart Y. Silverstein had previously edited a similar book, Not Much Fun: The Lost Poems of Dorothy Parker, but the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals questioned whether his selection was sufficiently "creative" to be protected by copyright.

The case is detailed here.
