There’s an article in today’s Guardian which asks some interesting questions about copyright and historical documents. Simon Waldman (the Guardian’s head of digital publishing) found an old 1938 edition of Homes and Gardens which contained an article about Hitler’s home. The article tells how he published scans of the article on his web site and how this gave him all sorts of problems. At one point he was being supported in his battle by David Irving – which is enough to bother any sane person.
