In Support of Miss Harper Lee

The one of the best reads of the 20th Century was --> To Kill A Mockingbird and one of the best reads of the 21st Century is still --> To Kill A Mockingbird, since sadly, all too sadly, the United States remains a very Racist Nation, with all too many White Supremacists hiding behind the Cross of Jesus.  For those who have yet to read this sadly timeless book>>>>

But now the United States Citizen who wrote the book still needs the support of her readers as she sues to get her copy rights back from

Author Of To Kill A Mockingbird Sues Agent For Swiping Her Copyright

from the actual-copyright-theft? dept

I know that the big copyright guys now love to use the term "copyright theft" to describe mere infringement. But if the story presented by Harper Lee, the 87-year-old author of To Kill A Mockingbird, in a new lawsuit is accurate, it appears that she's one of the few actual victims of copyright theft. She's now sued her former literary agent Samuel Pinkus, claiming that he effectively tricked her into signing away her copyright on the work to Pinkus' company, Keystone Literary.
Lee, who has failing eyesight and hearing, was residing in an assisted-living facility in 2007 after suffering a stroke when she signed a document assigning her copyright to Pinkus’s company, according to the complaint. While the copyright was re- assigned to Lee last year after legal action and Pinkus was discharged as Lee’s agent, he was still receiving royalties from the novel as of this year, according to the complaint.

And Keep following. After all, Miss Harper Lee is now in her late 80's, her mind is still sharp, but not her eyes or her hearing. She needs and deserves the support of all her readers and future readers.  

After all, Miss Harper Lee had the courage to speak out against Racist Hypocrisy at a time when Racism was overt. It is now time to show her that she has indeed be a good and faithful teacher in the lesson of courage.  Fight On, Miss Harper Lee, Fight On!!!
