Wright v. Warner Books
Wright v. Warner Books (1991) was a case in which the widow of the author Richard Wright (1908-1960) claimed that his biographer, the poet and writer Margaret Walker (1915-1998), had infringed copyright by using content from some of Wright's unpublished letters and journals. The court took into account the recent ruling in Salinger v. Random House (1987), which had found that a copyright owner had the right to control first publication, but found in favor of Walker after weighing all factors.

The Patry Copyright Blog: October 2007
My morning gossip rag, the New York Post, had this story yesterday about a suit brought by six Second Lifers suing a Queens man in the EDNY for copyright and trademark infringement for "counterfeiting and selling versions of their products." Among the products allegedly copied were clothing, shoes, and beds. As a virtual and real world, does the conceptual separabilty analysis apply to the design of useful articles on Second Life?.
