Re "King for sale," Opinion, April 22 I have enjoyed your paper for decades. Only lately have I read such false interpretations of commonly known facts. On Sept. 30, 1963, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. sent a copy of his "I Have a Dream" speech to the copyright office and applied for copyright protection. That same year, he filed a lawsuit against Mister Maestro Inc. and 20th Century Fox Record Corp. for copyright infringement after they sold recordings of the speech. King's actions have always shown that he intended for his wife and children to profit from his works.

CBS, Tribune Entertainment to Pay Copyright Damages: A federal judge Thursday ordered CBS Inc., Tribune Entertainment Co. and Geraldo Rivera's Investigative News Group to pay a total of $3,000 in a copyright suit stemming from their use of clips of Charles Manson and his family. The suit was brought by movie producer Robert Hendrickson, who had sought $310,000 because the defendants used two minutes of footage from his 1973 documentary "Manson." (Filed May 1, 1989. Case No. CV89-2601)

This agreeable, if not particularly scholarly, lexicon offers interesting accounts of the origins of some slang phrases and terms, including a few four-letter ones. How many people who put quarters in jukeboxes know the name is derived from juke, a house of ill repute, which comes (via Gullah) from the Wolof West Africa word dzug , to misconduct oneself? The etymologies of common words are more mundane and lack proper citations.

Books on the origins of words and phrases are almost always a lot of fun: They surprise you, they amuse you, they fascinate you, and they often open doors in your mind revealing influences and trends you had not suspected. To read such a reference book is almost a liberal education, almost enough to compensate for the educational failings described in Allan Bloom's "Closing of the American Mind."

A federal judge in Los Angeles said he didn't have the authority to subpoena mass murderer Charles Manson to testify in a film maker's copyright infringement suit against talk show host Geraldo Rivera. U.S. District Judge Ronald S. W. Lew said he had no authority to extend the 100-mile subpoena limit for witnesses and rejected Robert Hendrickson's request to call Manson to the witness stand.

P OP! Every parent of a bubble-gum chewing child dreads that sound. It signifies a struggle to remove sticky pink stuff from cheeks, lips, noses, even hair. But kids love bubble gum. In 1991 they chewed 150,000 pounds--15 million pieces--of the primarily pink gum each day , according to Zillions, Consumer Reports for Kids. Parents hate it.

Walter E. Diemer, who accidentally invented bubble gum while testing recipes in 1928, is dead at 93. Diemer's invention, developed when he was a 23-year-old accountant for a chewing gum company, became the bane of parents throughout the world, but remains the pleasure of countless youngsters--and some adults. By the 1990s, the gum, which originally sold for a penny a piece, was ringing up sales exceeding $1.2 billion a year.

EBay Inc. won what it called a precedent-setting court victory Thursday when a federal judge ruled that the Internet auction company was not liable for copyright infringement because bootleg copies of a Charles Manson documentary were sold on the site. The case was one of several recently that have tested provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, a 1998 law meant to stimulate Internet commerce while protecting copyrights.
