'To Kill a Mockingbird' author Lee sues over copyright in US
NEW YORK: The author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel “To Kill a Mockingbird” has filed a lawsuit to re-secure the copyright to it.
Harper Lee filed the lawsuit Friday in federal court in Manhattan. She seeks unspecified damages from a son-in-law of her former literary agent and related entities.
Lee says the relative failed to properly protect the copyright after the agent who had represented her since the book was published in 1960 became ill a decade ago. The 87-year-old author says he took advantage of her declining hearing and eyesight seven years ago to get her to assign the book’s copyright to him.
The son-in-law hasn’t returned a call seeking comment.
“To Kill a Mockingbird” won the Pulitzer for fiction. The film version won three Academy Awards. -- AP
