Who gets to publish what?

VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Companies that have held the rights to publish the written works of the former Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger met at the Vatican to discuss the limits and obligations of those rights.

The Dec. 13-16 meeting was called to discuss "common editorial policies to protect the thought of Joseph Ratzinger," said Jesuit Father Joseph Fessio, whose Ignatius Press holds the English-language rights to works written by Pope Benedict XVI prior to his election.

The meeting, sponsored by the Vatican publishing house, Libreria Editrice Vaticana, included a daylong discussion of legal issues with the publishers, most of which are based in Germany and Italy.
