  • Letter from Gerard Piel, Publisher, Scientific American, to Hans Rotta, Naturwissenschaftliche Rundshau, RE: Naturwissenschaftlische Rundschau published a translation of the article "The Structure of Protein Molecules," published a year ago in Scientific American. No such permission was accorded to Naturwissenschaftliche Rundshau. Thus, reprinting the article was an infringement on copyright laws. As this is the second incident of such character, Scientific American is ready to invoke the full sanction of the law and to place this matter in the hands of their attorneys. In lieu of such action, they would be satisfied if Naturwissenschaftliche Rundshau would take certain compensatory actions. Describes these steps in detail.
