A "Catcher in the Rye" Rip-off?

A temporary restraining order was placed on the publication of "60 Years Later: Coming Through the Rye," by Fedrik Colting. A U.S. federal judge placed the restraining order because the book, scheduled to be released in September, didn't receive J. D. Salinger's permission to be published. Salinger is the author of the famous book, "The Catcher in the Rye."

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the restraining order was placed so that the judge could carefully examine the copyright law. The new book is similar to the original, but, according to Colting's lawyer, there "is no substantial similarity."

The new book is about an older version of Holden Caulfield, the protagonist in "Catcher in the Rye," Upi.com reports. According to the New York Times, the courts decision of publication of books is determined on whether the new work has significantly changed so much so to add new meaning.

J. D. Salinger, who remains a recluse to this day, has hired a lawyer that claims the book is a pure and simple rip-off.
