Dewey Decimal bullies go after theme hotel

The rights-holders to the Dewey Decimal System are suing some people who opened a Dewey-themed hotel in Manhattan where the rooms are decorated and appointed according to the subject that corresponds with their number.
Online Computer Library Center, a nonprofit organization based in this Columbus suburb, acquired the rights to Dewey Decimal in 1988 when it bought Forest Press...

The complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Columbus on Wednesday seeks triple the hotel's profits since its opening or triple the organization's damages, whichever is greater, from hotel owner Henry Kallan.
