JOSEPH GOEBBELS' ESTATE SUED A PUBLISHER FOR DIARY ROYALTIES
The publishers won't pay up because of moral objections
The estate of Hitler's propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, is suing the publisher Random House for using extracts from his diary without paying royalties.
A biography of Goebbels released by Random House quotes from his diary, which is copyrighted until the end of this year.
The copyright is owned by Cordula Schacht, daughter of Hjalmar Schacht, who served under Hitler before being ousted from the Third Reich government before the outbreak of WWII.
The publisher had agreed to pay 1 percent of retail costs to his estate, but now says it won't, citing moral objections.

NICOLA STURGEON ISN'T RULING OUT ANOTHER SCOTTISH REFERENDUM
She said it wouldn't be "democratic" to deny Yes voters another shot
Nicola Sturgeon, leader of the SNP, said this weekend that it would not be "democratic" to rule out another independence referendum.
Speaking to Andrew Marr she said she had no plans for another referendum "at this stage", but refused to rule it out in the future.
"If there is to be another one, Scottish voters would have to vote for a proposition in a manifesto and give a party, presumably the SNP, a majority in the Scottish parliament to get that legislation through. I can't impose that," she said.

Two sisters from Devon are being locked inside an alarmed bedroom every night so that their mother can see her convicted paedophile partner, the Sunday Mirror revealed this weekend.

A MAN WAS SPOTTED "AGGRESSIVELY MASTURBATING" AT A BUS STOP
Police have advised residents of a South London road to be extra vigilant
A balding man was spotted "aggressively masturbating" at a bus stop in South London, prompting police to advise residents to be extra vigilant.
An unnamed woman was walking past the bus stop on Heather Road in Grove Park when she spotted the man.
"When he saw me – and I saw him – I started running and he started making the most awful grunting sounds and became quite aggressive with his willy," she told News Shopper. "Even though he never chased me, who's to say he won't chase the next young woman and do something more aggressive."
A spokesman for the Met Police said: "We were called around 12.36AM on the 16th of April to reports of a naked man outside Grove Park station playing with himself. When officers arrived the man had made off. The area was searched but officers were unable to locate the man."
