The Big O: Taking Your Poems and Saying They’re Hers

August 6, 2009

Author Damon Lloyd Goffe is suing Oprah and her production company, Harpo, for allegedly stealing material from the writer’s work titled A Tome of Poetry and publishing it under the name, Pieces of My Soul.

According to legal documents, Goffe claims the talk show host admitted to the thievery last year.

The poet believes that since Oprah sold over 650 million editions of the work online for $20 a copy, he is entitled to 1.2 trillion dollars!

Update: whoa do the commenters at videogum.com TOTALLY understand the life of the poet, or what:

      Don: We pay in glitter and puns. Let us know if you want the glitter to be gold, silver, or multicolored.
