Suing For The Right To Publish Book in States

Shirin Ebadi, the Iranian lawyer who won the Nobel Peace Prize last year, can’t publish her memoirs in the United States due to the Treasury Department rules about editing books from “axis of evil” countries. She has filed suit.

Ms Ebadi said in her suit that blocking the publication of her memoirs in the US would be a “critical missed opportunity both for Americans to learn more about my country and its people from a variety of Iranian voices and for a better understanding to be achieved between our two countries”.

There’s also an Op-Ed about this on CNN Money.
