Shloss Wins (Again)

Back in April, I mentioned that, after settling her lawsuit against the James Joyce Estate, Stanford Professor Carol Shloss had moved for an order requiring the Estate to pay her attorneys' fees. Today that motion was granted. The amount of the fees hasn't yet been set, but Anthony Falzone of Stanford's Fair Use Project, which represents Shloss in the lawsuit, says "we hope this demonstrates that inadequate respect for fair use's critical role in scholarly inquiry and free expression can have substantial and serious consequences." You can read the court's order here.
