Copyright Infringement? New York Times Sues Book Publisher for Use of War Photos

In a recently filed lawsuit, the New York Times finds itself in the perhaps unusual posture of suing someone else for going to print. The vaunted newspaper sued the publisher and the author of a recent book, War is Beautiful, alleging that the book’s cover used thumbnails of numerous NYT front pages without paying a licensing fee. The complaint, filed in December, alleges that Powerhouse Books infringed on the Times’ copyright when it printed the book with a cover that contained 64 images of front pages that depict wartime photography.
