Stowe v. Thomas (1853)
Emancipation and Translation
In 1853 Harriet Beecher Stowe sued F. W. Thomas, a Philadelphia publisher who had brought out a translation of Uncle Tom’s Cabin for the German-language trade. In a controversial decision, Justice Robert Grier… ruled that the German translation did not infringe her copyright.
For those not registered in the course for credit, there is a copy of the reading on 2-hour course reserve at the Bora Laskin Law Library.
