UK Court Blocks Autobiography at Request of Ex-Wife

Well, it’s only a temporary injunction, but a strange one given the circumstances:

A well-known artist in the UK is publishing a memoir, including sections that deal with the sexual abuse he suffered as a child. His ex-wife obtained the injunction on publishing that factual account of his life because she believes it will harm, by her lawyer’s own admission, a single child the two had together. That child is suffering a wide range of health problems, including Asperger’s Syndrome, and the ex-wife is suggesting that reading the father’s account would cause further harm.

So until a trial judge sorts it all out, nobody gets to read it. More details at the Techdirt link.
