Foundation "dismayed" at publication of public domain manuscript

john83 (923470) writes "The Irish Times reports that publication of a new children’s story by a Dublin publishing house has been criticised by The Zürich James Joyce Foundation, which owns the original manuscript of the story. In a statement, the foundation said it “never permitted, tolerated, condoned or connived in this publication, and it rigidly dissociates itself from it”.

The Dublin publisher, Ithys, said the unpublished works of James Joyce were in the public domain as of January 1st. The attempt by “the Zürich Joyce Centre” (sic) proprietarily to assert some right on the document was “preposterous”. “The said centre has no rights in law in the copyright of the papers donated (given free) by Dr Jahnke.”

The stated goals of The Zurich James Joyce Foundation include "... keeping alive the memory and work of the Irish writer James Joyce ..."

Joyce died in January 1941."
