Joyce’s estate getting sued


James Joyce’s estate is being too stingy with copywrited material to suit one scholar at Stanford. She’s taking them to court:

In the lawsuit, Carol Shloss, an acting English professor and Joycean scholar, challenged the estate’s assertion that she would be infringing on its ownership of Joyce’s image by quoting his published works, manuscripts and private letters on her scholarly site.

Instead, Shloss accused Joyce’s grandson, Stephen James Joyce, and estate trustee, Sean Sweeney, of destroying papers, improperly withholding access to copyrighted materials and intimidating academics to protect the Joyce family name.

I always did like “Trees”.
