• ‘Merkos’: Rebbe’s Wish No Longer Our Command

    As reported on this site, two weeks ago, a Judge ruled that Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch does not exclusively own the rights to publish the Rebbe’s works, but rather, any entity that wishes to publish may do so, being that the Rebbe’s works, like the Mishna, Gemara, or Rambam, belong in the public domain, and therefore, anyone can publish any part of it.

    This week, the court will move to the second stage, which pertains to the use of the Kehos Logo and tradename—whether Merkos owns the Logo, or is it also in the public domain. Merkos makes that claim by asserting that Kehos is their subsidiary.

    The litigants (Merkoz) in their Civil Action petitioned the Judge to bar any other entity, including Vaad L’Hafotzas Sichos, from using the logo and tradename; this despite the Rebbe explicitly permitting them its use, as the litigants themselves admit in their petition (p. 4)

    How does Merkos explain this ‘discrepancy’— essentially contradicting the Rebbe’s express permission? In their great tenacity, they claim that the Rebbe’s permissions was only by virtue of his authority as the president of Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch, and therefore, being that today Merkos is directed by Yehuda Krinsky, it’s within Krinsky’s purview to negate that permittance (p.4)
