The Washington Post carried Reuters coverage of the settlement agreement between Stanford scholar Carol Shloss and the James Joyce Estate over permission to publish excerpts of letters between Joyce and his daughter Lucia. Shloss was represented by a team from Stanford Law School's Center for Internet and Society, Cyberlaw Clinic, and Fair Use Project. The executive director of the Fair Use Project, Anthony Falzone, is quoted:

According to Schloss' attorney Anthony Falzone, executive director of the Fair Use Project at Stanford, the Joyce estate has been "extremely aggressive in enforcing copyrights and has threatened scholars with lawsuits even though their work qualifies under the 'fair use' doctrine of copyright law."

He added that Schloss "got exactly what she asked for in her complaint, and more."
