Hitler's Intellectual Property?

June 26, 2009

The (immortal) German state of Bavaria, it seems, claims and exercises ownership rights in respect of Adolf Hitler’s bestseller, Mein Kampf. Sixty-four years after the author’s death, this article in Haaretz recounts the prosecution in Poland of an entrepreneur who got 20,000 copies printed up, presumably in Polish.

Just what market it encountered in the first country the Nazis counquered in World War II (proper) isn’t mentioned.
