Overlook Claims Right to Publish eBook Translation of 'The Master and Margarita'

Posted at 1:12PM Monday 10 Dec 2012

Overlook Press sued the grandchildren of Russian author Mikhail Bulgakov, claiming an eBook translation of his masterpiece "The Master and Margarita" will not violate copyright, as Overlook owns rights to a print translation.

Peter Mayer Publishers dba Overlook Press sued Daria Shilovskaya and Sergey Sholovskiy, the children of Bulgakov's only child, Elena Shilovskaya, in Federal Court.

Overlook seeks declaration of non-infringement and wants the court to determine a fair royalty rate for an ebook version.
