Mein Kampf: copyright debate in Germany

The controversial Adolf Hitler’s text (which translates into English as “my struggle”) could be published in Germany for the very first time after its copyright expiration term (31 December 2015).

The State of Bavaria chose not to publish the book up to now, but after 2015 everyone, in theory, would be free to print and sell the book in absence of copyright protection. According to Bavaria’s justice minister Winfried Bausback, who would prefer not to publish the book in any way, it should be at least guaranteed that there is an annotated edition of the book for academic use, so as to provide a scientific and critical analysis of the text.
