Another was that the Appellate Divisionerred in requiring an accountingof the sales made to its customers for the books of the author, from the time it knew theauthor was in publication to the time ithad published Electronica AttilioMileaf. Here it relied on the wordingofthe Special Term order that no accountingshould be had as to sales made by thepublisher to its customers “prior to andsubsequent to the date” of publicationof the author’s books. It did notinform the Special Term that suchwas the practice of the publisher in adistributing its own products. So far asthe Appellate Division was concerned,the ordering of an accounting, if any,should include only the sales madeafter it knew that the author’s books werein publication.
In addition, however, Mileaf and the otherauthors employed the very same salesagent-brokerage house which the publisher hadutilized for the Milesaf books. This agent was in the author’sbusiness and was retained by him asadvertising agent and agent for the Mileaf books.
Mileaf and his brokers had been the exclusiveagents for the Milesaf books and the publisherfor these books. With the Mileaf books theyalso had an exclusive agency in the advertisingof those books. Mileaf also had an agency toretain or represent outside writers for adver-tising other books, not for reprints. His agency forthis purpose was limited to the following:”Writing Services” to be employed or entrust-ed by the author to write the “inspirational” fiction to be used for the advertisementsof the “Electricity” and “Electronics” books.

The author at this point was assured that therewould be no new venture in the author’s fieldand he did not learn until this litigationcommenced that Mileaf had written, and thepublisher had published, the Mileaf books, at leastone of which had been sold. As far as theauthor was aware he had no agent or otherrepresentative selling and publishingbooks in his field.
A well-rounded and systematic introduction to the principles of electronic circuits for the first-year engineering student. Its scope is limited but its coverage is thorough. The text brings together the basic principles of electronic theory and their application to circuits. While not devoted to theory, the book puts the principles in an easy-to-appreciate setting. The scope is limited and the coverage is thorough, but the book’s text is not as focused as those of the present series. It does not contain, for example, the level-by-level discussion of the principles, nor do its diagrams emphasize the complexities of the components of an electronic circuit.
This will probably be the most widely used text in current teachingof electronic circuits. It provides the most general treatment of the subjects of the pre-college and college levels. The text follows the successful approach of the present series. Careful balance is struck between the background material needed for study and the problems posed by the subject matter.
The Appellate Division’s decision in the Mileaf case,noting this, was affirmed, andthe Supreme Court denied certiorari. There is noappellate decision available on the Mileaf case. In an affidavit of the author’s attorney he states that it was hisunderstanding that in the event the SupremeCourt affirmed the Appellate Division’s decision in theMileaf case, the publisher “would not be liable forthe entire copyright damages awarded bySpecial Term.” Unfortunately this was not the case. At the reference,a referee received and considered the author’saffidavit and was apparently impressed, thoughnot convinced, that the publication of theMileaf books was not “willful.”
