The Stanford Center for Internet and Society‘s Fair Use Project has filed a law suit against Stephen Joyce, who claims the right to control access to the papers and letters of James Joyce. The context of the suit is described well in this article appearing in the New Yorker by D. T. Max. The complaint in the case can be found here.
This is the first in what we expect will be a series of cases defending the boundaries of fair use. Stay tuned.
