COPY-Goldman family purchase rights to Simpson's canceled book

Associated Press - July 3, 2007 4:24 AM ET

MIAMI (AP) - Ron Goldman's family is calling it a victory today, celebrating a settlement which gives them the rights to OJ Simpson's canceled book, "If I Did It."

The Goldmans acquired the book from a court appointed bankruptcy trustee yesterday.

Goldman was slain along with Simpson's ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson in 1994. The Goldmans want the book's proceeds included as part of a nearly $33 million civil jury award they have been trying to collect for almost a decade.

According to court documents, the Goldmans own the copyright, media rights and movie rights. They also acquired Simpson's name, likeness and publicity rights in connection with the book.

The Goldmans plan to shop the manuscript around to movie producers and literary agents.
