Senator Cranston's unauthorized translation of Mein Kampf

Georgetown's law librarians are the best.  My latest acquisition, from Houghton Mifflin Co. v. Noram Publ'g Co., 28 F. Supp. 676 (S.D.N.Y. 1939), which features in (among other things) Jed Rubenfeld's discussion of copyright's burdens on free speech.  Note the "not one cent of royalty to Hitler" legend, as well as the box "millions sold in book form at $3.00 now for the first time in this popular edition at 10¢."  As always, the Georgetown IP Teaching Resources Database stands ready to serve your IP teaching needs--I even take requests!
