Stanford Law School's Fair Use Project has announced that Stanford University Acting Professor of English Carol Shloss won the right to publish her scholarship on the literary work of James Joyce online and in print based on a settlement agreement with the Joyce Estate. Shloss v. Estate of James Joyce sought to establish Shloss's right to use copyrighted materials in her writing under the "fair use" doctrine.
The Stanford Fair Use Project and Cyberlaw Clinic filed a lawsuit on behalf of Shloss in June 2006, asking a federal court to find that she has the right to use quotations from published and unpublished material relating to James and Lucia Joyce on a scholarly website.
This week, Stephen James Joyce and the Joyce Estate entered into a settlement agreement enforceable by the court that lets Shloss publish this material electronically and also publish a printed supplement to her book "Lucia Joyce: To Dance in the Wake."
