Subject: Sunny Spain article use for local US newspaper

Andrew,

Thanks for the hard hitting and brief article on solar power. I would like to submit it to our local newspaper (Bellefontaine, Ohio - target of wind developers) - as an opinion editorial.

They will print it provided the author shows up and signs a release in person. To get around this, I would like permission to make minor modifications and have a local citizen submit it as their own.

Would be happy to send you the draft first for your approval or advice. Thank you.

Um. What?

I wrote back:

You're proposing taking work to which you have no rights, and without compensation, passing it off as some one else's?

Unfazed, Tom simply replied:

Whatever, dude.

Clearly, for some people, the concept of ownership and rights is quite an amorphous thing. Maybe that statutory maximum ($150,000 per offence) in the DMCA just isn't high enough. What do you think? ®
