Baupost Group said the version of Seth Klarman’s 1991 investment book, “Margin of Safety,” that appeared on Amazon.com was published without his approval and that his legal team is taking action.

Klarman, a hedge fund legend and Baupost’s chief executive officer, hasn’t authorized republication of the book in any form. The Boston-based firm said in a statement Tuesday that what showed up on Amazon was a copyright violation.
