I am glad to report that in the Salinger v. Colting dispute the court has granted the plaintiff’s motion for a preliminary injunction enjoining Colting and his publishers from manufacturing, publishing, distributing, shipping, advertising, promoting, selling, or otherwise disseminating any copy of 60 Years or any portion thereof, in or to the United States.

In a well thought out decision, U.S. District Judge Deborah A. Batts has provided a great summary of U.S. law on the treatment of parody. I am very glad that her analysis and conclusions are virtually identical to my those in my research paper and my recent article. I am especially delighted that she paid a lot of attention to the concurrence of Justice Kennedy in Cambell v. Acuff-Rose Music Inc. It is to be hoped for that her analysis withstands all stages of appeal.
