A landmark case to determine the rights of academics to make scholarly use of copyrighted materials has been brought against the Estate of James Joyce by the Cyberlaw Clinic and the Fair Use Project, a newly launched initiative of the Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School. The suit, brought on behalf of Joyce scholar Carol Shloss, asks the Court to hold that Shloss has the right to use quotations on her scholarly website from published and unpublished material relating to James Joyce and his daughter, Lucia. The Joyce Estate had threatened legal action against her.
