Collected John Lennon letters to be published

This story was taken down on 25 January 2011 pending investigation.

The following correction was published on 26 January 2011:
• A report of plans to publish a volume of John Lennon's letters incorrectly stated that Yoko Ono had sold the intellectual property rights to the letters. To clarify: Yoko Ono has not sold the copyright of John Lennon's letters, but she has given permission for their publication, although no deal has yet been agreed with any publisher (Days in the life: Lennon's letters to be released, 21 January, page 13).

This story was taken down on 25 January 2011 pending investigation.
