General Obligation Bond

In the United States, a municipal bond in which the issuing locality pledges to use all revenues at its disposal to pay bondholders, including the raising of property taxes. Should a sufficient number of residents not pay their property taxes that it impacts revenue for bondholders, the terms of the bond legally require the municipality to raise property taxes to make up the shortfall. There are two basic types of general obligation bonds. A limited GO allows for the raising of property taxes up to a certain percentage, while an unlimited GO theoretically allows the municipality to levy taxes of up to 100% of a property's value. Because an unlimited GO provides a great incentive to pay property tax on time, and because many states only allow such a bond to be issued following a vote on the matter, credit ratings agencies usually rate them higher. However, both types of GO are generally rated highly.

In a federal District Court there, the Mitchell Trusts, which owns the copyright to Gone With the Wind, successfully blocked the publication of Alice Randall's novel, The Wind Done Gone, arguing that the new book engaged in "blatant and wholesale theft" of Mitchell's fictional universe.
The Wind Done Gone essentially flips the moral landscape of Mitchell's book by presenting whites as lazy and stupid and blacks as intelligent and hardworking.
Pannell ruled that Randall's novel veered into "piracy" and plagiarism by using more than a dozen barely altered characters from Gone With the Wind, and by incorporating too many scenes and too much dialogue from the original.
The Wind Done Gone, he said, "could serve as a market substitute for a sequel," which would reduce the Mitchell Trusts' "ability to continue to tell the love story of Scarlett and Rhett" and earn money from the original work and any official spin-offs.
which authorized a 1991 sequel, Scarlett, and reportedly has another one in the works-maintains control of Gone With the Wind until 2036.
Following from that, the core of Pannell's ruling is the belief that The Wind Done Gone would hurt sales of Gone With the Wind and any related works directly authorized by the Mitchell Trusts.
But it is highly dubious that The Wind Done Gone would hurt the Mitchell Trusts' bottom line.
Similarly, if The Wind Done Gone sees print, the likely outcome will be a burst of new interest in Gone With the Wind (already one of the very best-selling books in history).
