Random House Inc. has asked a federal judge to bar a publisher of electronic books from copying works of William Styron, Kurt Vonnegut, and Robert Parker and selling them over the Internet. Random House, a unit of Bertelsmann AG, the world's third largest media company, says rival RosettaBooks LLC has cherry-picked eight important titles, including "Sophie's Choice" and "Slaughterhouse-Five," copied them in digital format, and begun selling them online.

Random House Inc. has settled a lawsuit against an e-book publisher that was selling digital versions of Kurt Vonnegut's "Cat's Cradle" and seven other popular titles. RosettaBooks will continue publishing the works, which predate the rise of the Web, and will collaborate with Random House on additional books. But the settlement leaves unresolved the issue of whether authors or publishers control rights to e-books when the contract has no specific language about the electronic format.
