A regional court conditionally dropped a criminal case against a Polish publisher after determining that he broke copyright rules by publishing Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf, prosecutors said Tuesday. The Wroclaw regional court found that the publisher, identified only as Marek S., broke copyright law by printing 3,000 copies of a Polish translation of Mein Kampf, or "My Struggle," in 2005, said Leszek Karpina, a spokesman for Wroclaw prosecutors. Arguing that the harm caused by the small-scale publishing of the book was minimal - especially since Marek S. agreed at a 2005 civil trial to halt printing and withdraw the work from bookstores at his own cost - the court agreed to drop the case against the publisher for a probationary period of two years, Karpina said.
