Assange's Biography Stolen in [?] Deep Political Op - or just Make-A-Buck Op???
#1
An unrevised draft of Julian Assange's memoirs, ghost-written by Andrew O'Hagan, is being distributed without Julian Assange's consent by Canongate.
In a statement Julian describes the circumstances that lead to the unauthorized publication:
...I am not "the writer" of this book. I own the copyright of the manuscript, which was written by Andrew O'Hagan. By publishing this draft against my wishes Canongate has acted in breach of contract, in breach of confidence, in breach of my creative rights and in breach of personal assurances. The US publisher, Knopf, withdrew from the deal when it learned of Canongate's intentions to publish without my consent. This book was meant to be about my life's struggle for justice through access to knowledge. It has turned into something else. The events surrounding its unauthorised publication by Canongate are not about freedom of information they are about old-fashioned opportunism and duplicityscrewing people over to make a buck.

"Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience! People are obedient in the face of poverty, starvation, stupidity, war, and cruelty. Our problem is that grand thieves are running the country. That's our problem!" - Howard Zinn
