Brazilian translator Denise Bottmann has been sued by Landmark Press because on her blog (http://naogostodeplagio NULL.blogspot NULL.com/), she had written about the widespread plagiarism of literary translations in Brazil. CEATL supports Denise in her fight against plagiarism. According to the Berne Convention (http://www NULL.ceatl NULL.eu/translators-rights/legal-status/#s1 NULL.), signed by Brazil in 1922, literary translations are protected as original works (Art. 2).
