CIS Fair Use Project Sues Joyce Estate on Behalf of Scholar Carol Shloss

On June 12, 2006, CIS filed suit against the Estate of James Joyce on behalf of Stanford English professor Carol Shloss. In a nutshell, the Complaint asks for a declaration that Professor Shloss is permitted under "fair use" to make use on her academic website of certain Joyce materials that are copyrighted. In addition, the suit argues that due to the Joyce Estate's history of misusing its copyrights, the Court should hold that the Estate is barred from enforcing its copyrights against Professor Shloss.
