The Old Scholar's Historical Thoughts

October 26, 2009

Copyright as a weapon against historians

Filed under: Readings — theoldscholar @ 11:50 pm

I came across this article about John Dean fighting to stop a recording of him being posted on nixontapes.org. Stifling the publication of  primary evidence by threatening with copyright infringement doesn’t seem right. I can not find any other references to this fight, but those particular recordings are not on the site. It easier if you are an ancient scholar. I don’t think Julius Ceaser will be coming back to sue over copyright infringement or libel.
