German Government Sues British Publishers for Printing, Selling Nazi Newspapers

The German government is suing a British publishing company after they republished 280 copies of Nazi-era newspapers, the Daily Mail reported.

Printing and disseminating Nazi symbols, such as the swastika, is a criminal offense in Germany.

Alberta, a London-based publishing company, will also be charged with breach of copyright laws, because the German government owns the publishing rights for the Nazi-era newspapers, the Mail reported.

The publishing company's CEO said the reprints were for education purposes and were not to promote Nazism, the Mail reported. He also denied copyright rules were violated.
