    The book is a liberal fantasy use to brainwash students in many of our schools. It is a shame that the author lost the rights that belonged to her. It is sad to think of the grief this must have caused her.

    Atticus Finch would be appalled with this obvious miscarriage of Justice. Did Harper Lee have legal advice telling her to sign away the copy rights to TKAM? You would have thought her childhood friend, Author Truman Capote, would have put a bug in her ear to at least talk to an Attorney. I'm sure there is an interesting backstory to Lee's copywrite decision. Prehaps the D-News staff can research this issue an enlighten us faithful readers.

    "Lee filed suit in New York alleging that her former literary agent misled her into signing away her copyright to the book."


    To the reporter; it would help to know to whom the copyright was assigned. This inquiring mind, at least, would find the very useful information for this story.

    I do not know (or care about) the merits in this case, but to have Ms. Lee even consider what happened to her breaks my heart.
