Electronic publisher RosettaBooks has won another legal round in its copyright infringement lawsuit with Random House. The Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a lower court's decision, denying a preliminary injunction that would have prohibited RosettaBooks from selling digital versions of some novels published by Random House. Bertelsmann-owned Random House sued RosettaBooks in February 2001. The suit seeks to prevent the smaller publisher from selling e-books of Random House titles by authors William Styron, Kurt Vonnegut and Robert Parker. A key question in the dispute is whether authors or publishers own the digital rights to books. Random House has the right to publish, print and sell the novels in "book form," according to court documents. --Gwendolyn Mariano, Special to ZDNet News
