Isabeau's Journal

 November, 12 2005

OK, folks-this is the general forum now for questions that don't seem to fit in any of the other threads. I'm going to sort some of the earlier posts into the appropriate forums, but it might take a while, so bear with me. I'll delete the ones that have already been reposted by their authors.

Hi there, Eressa!

I'm thinking that someone else might have had Captain bound on Lulu several years ago. I didn't have a problem then, and I don't now, so long as it is for personal use, as you did. And less I be accused of hypocrisy, textual poacher that I am, I simply don't want to be trounced by the Tolkien estate if someone prints a bunch of them and tries to profit from the Professor's stuff. It's certainly no different from someone printing it out, which several people have done. It's a very long story, and some folks have vision problems when they look at a screen for long periods of time.

I do wonder if someone could print limited copies of fanfiction stories (say, for instance, some of the HA onlist challenge stories) and circulate them in a limited audience (like just for list members). Would that be permissable, like a fanzine? Anyone who knows something about copyright law feel free to chime in! Because I certainly don't...

Do let me know what the book looks like when you get it, Eressa. How is it bound? Did you have artwork for the cover? I'm rather curious.
