RTE headline Is this the first time Guinness has published the same story twice?
article Now the world record book is being sued by the Guinness World Records.
The record book in question is the world’s largest book of the world and covers everything from music to poetry to film.
A few days ago the record book company launched a petition to have the story of the record changed to something less sensational, as it is currently known.
The company said the story was about a “murderer and rapist who raped and murdered his daughter”.
In response, the Guinness Press Office has said it will remove the story from its website in light of the lawsuit.
A spokeswoman for the Guinness press office said: “The story of a murder and rapist and the fact he raped and killed his daughter are very different matters.”
We are happy to remove the news article from our website in line with the rules of our publishers.
“The petition was launched by the Women’s Action Network and has more than 70,000 signatures.
In response to the petition, the company said:”The world record for most books of the year is held by the book by the great Sir Walter Scott, which has sold more than 1.2 million copies.”
But in the meantime the story has been widely covered in the US, Australia, Canada, France, and Germany.
Meanwhile, it is still the Guinness record for the most books sold.
