For Gods sake:

18 February 2004

From the Scotsman: This June is the centenary of Bloomsday, and the Irish govt are planning celebrations in Dublin, but there will be no public readings as “Stephen Joyce, the writer’s grandson, has informed the Irish government he will sue for breach of copyright if any recitations take place. The septuagenarian who lives in Paris, has made millions of pounds from the proceeds of copyright of Joyce’s work and from suing for its infringement”
I mean I believe in a certain amount of copyright, but suing to stop a celebration of the work seems a little strange to me, surely it is promotion? I don’t know story via the Bookslut Blog
