Help – Need Answers to Chess History Questions

HELP! When I was in Cleveland I discovered there was a world championship match where the games where copyrighted and sold by “wire” to newspapers, etc. The spectators had to sign an agreement that limited what they could do with the game scores.

Which match was that? Lasker – Steinitz 1894 is most likely. There was also Steinitz – Zukertort 1886 and Lasker – Marshall 1907. Please send me the exact details.

Question Two: In which book(s) translated into English did Botvinnik say: “The next world champion should be a Soviet, like me, and not an Estonian, like Paul Keres.”?
