100 Aker Royalty

Amy Wallace has a wonderful article in this month's Los Angeles Magazine, titled Lawyers, Tiggers & Bears, Oh My! It chronicles the royalty battle between Shirley Slesinger Lasswell, who owns the U.S. and Canadian merchandising, radio and television rights to Winnie-the-Pooh, and Disney, and it does so in a style that would make A.A. Milne proud: "The Thistly Thicket in which Woozles who practice entertainment law reside is even smaller and more insular than Pooh Corner." A worthy expotition.
