NEW YORK — An upcoming critical biography of L. Ron Hubbard, author and founder of the Church of Scientology, may be published in its original form, a federal appeals court ruled.
The 2nd us. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court's ruling in February for New Era Publications International, exclusive licensee of Hubbard's works, which had filed a copyright infringement lawsuit.
Hubbard died in 1986.
The appeals court held Thursday the book's quotations from Hubbard's published works, which amount to about 3 percent of the total biography by Jon Atack, called A Piece of Blue Sky: Scientology, Dianetics and L Ron Hubbard Exposed constituted fair use.
