Copyright Fight Makes London Papers

The Dorothy Parker copyright fight was the subject of a Saturday article in the London Telegraph. The columnist says of Penguin’s editors, “we can wonder if they’re proud that their edition included evidence of little more scholarship than it takes to use a photocopier” and “There’s no law against slapdash publishing.” He writes that although the plaintiff, Stuart Silverstein, was ruled against, Penguin should be ashamed of it’s victory in the courts. A good read. Silverstein has 30 days to file an appeal, which would be sometime in early December.
