Astrid Lindgren court battle ends

The company run by Astrid Lindgren's descendents has won a court battle against a publisher owned by one of the biggest media companies in Sweden.

Stockholm's district court decided on Friday that publisher SF was wrong to package a boxed set of CDs that mixed sound from Astrid Lindgren films with material from other sources. SF is owned by the Bonniers group that also owns media including Dagens Nyheter, Expressen, and TV4.

The Saltkråkan company, owned by the author's children and grandchildren, says that SF had adulterated Astrid Lindgren's work, and that the company owned them millions of kronor in copyright payments.
