Irish university may sue over Star Wars movie

Irish university may sue over Star Wars movie. – “Ireland's oldest university said Tuesday it is taking legal advice on whether Star Wars director George Lucas used an image of its famous library without its permission.”

“The Long Room of Trinity College's library was built in 1732 and houses a number of treasures including the Book of Kells, which dates from the ninth century and is today one of Ireland's top tourist attractions.”

“The impressive two-storey galleried library is 64 metres long by 12 metres broad (about 210 feet by 690 feet) and contains about 200,000 of the university's oldest books.”

“Librarian Robin Adams said similarities with the image of the Jedi Temple Archive Library in “Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones” had been brought to his attention by someone who have learned about it on an Internet discussion page.” (from Middle East Times) [Library Stuff]
