After the death of Károly Kisfaludy, the founder-editor of the ground-breaking literary almanac titled The Aurora. National Almanac, the so called Aurora Lawsuit broke out, which aimed to settle the control over the future fate of the publication. The literary consensus so far concluded that the polemics were won by József Bajza, who triumphed over his opponents, furthermore it was him who separated the hitherto confused definitions of author, editor and publisher, as well as the division of the rights of the publisher, author and editor, and he also managed to improve the recognition of the latter. The paper “reinterprets” the Aurora Lawsuit with a more critical view of József Bajza than before. Besides its purpose to prove that there was no superior triumph, it also aims to point out the basic motivation behind the situation, which was not discussed properly before, the aspect of power-financial gain.
